I have to use facebook for my job. When i go through my newsfeeds, pictures that are posted by friends or followers are very small on the moblie site... About the size of profile pics. If i click on the pic, it will open the post and it's still just as small. I can click view full size to actually see the picture. Unless i go through this process i can't really see the pic. The rest of the site looks normal. It is happening with all browsers. This didnt happen with my droid x, droid razr max hd or droid x 1st gen. If i go to the desktop site, pictures are normal size. Any help would be great! I attached a pic to show you what i'm talking about. Thanks.

I think it might have something to do with Facebook mistaking the new 1080p Moto X for the old 720p Moto X and delivering smaller images. I've reported it to them with some screenshots, but don't expect it to get fixed.

Posted about this a week or so ago. The error happens in Chrome but not Firefox on Lollipop, but not KitKat. One suggestion that was given & actually works is to go to the facebook mobile site & then choose the option to request the desktop site. It'll refresh the mobile site & show the bigger images.

I doubt it's something with facebook itself because it works normally in Chrome on KitKat & only started happening when I upgraded to Lollipop.
