When clicking on the FeedingDenversHungry.org links through Facebook on my mobile device, it does not allow me to sign-up for your services!

Facebook is one of the most powerful Social Media Outlets that is available to us. It allows us to be able to share updates and provide important information to the community that we love dearly. Unfortunately; Facebook keeps making updates to their mobile apps that tries to keep the user in the Facebook app. With that in mind, some mobile devices  will open our links while being within the Facebook app and not able to use our services because the privacy settings on the user’s device, the privacy settings on the user’s Facebook app and of course the privacy settings on the Feeding Denver’s Hungry’s website and with our partners.

Our website donor, Nivek Group, has tried working with Facebook to get an official support document from them regarding this matter. Naturally, Facebook does not respond. Our website Donor, Nivek Group, has scoured the web and they have found a support article that walks users through on how fix this.
