If you’re wondering why your HD photos gets blurry and little bit low resolution when you upload it on Facebook using the mobile app for Android and iPhone or iOS device, this post may answer you why that is happening.

By default, Facebook settings are configured to upload compressed files to lessen storage space and for faster loading on your home feeds page.
For you to use this feature, make sure that you’re using the latest version of FB app, just go to Google Playstore or iTunes App Store then tap the update button to download and install.
