    Most Facebook games require Flash.

    First you'd need to side load Flash. Then use a browser that supports mobile Flash. Then make sure you're accessing the desktop version of Facebook on said browser.

    Firefox supports it I think. Why would you want to play Facebook fans though, there are some great Android games that will run better and be more fun.

    Is it just facebook games you have tried or have you tried other more standard flash web pages?

    Try this link to test if flash is enabled:

    IF it is installed, then you are having facebook specific issues - first, you must be certain you are viewing it with a normal user agent identity and not as a mobile phone web site. IF it still doesn't work, then there is some sort of limitation on facebook not allowing these games over mobile devices.

    it is a Facebook issue because one of their games now requires the latest version of Flash that is currently not supported by any browser on android

    This seems like a lot of trouble for a game on Facebook.

    Yes - for most. But there are some people really addicted to those games. I have successfully recovered from farmville years ago. lol

    Plus, it is just fun to go thru the issues with getting something to work. I like the challenge.

    I keep seeing Firefox named as the browser to use for Flash implementation. However, there are many others that work just as well and that have a more intuitive interface than the "let's be different just for the sake of being different" Firefox. Boat Browser is my current favorite, but Maxthon and xScope browsers, among others, work very well with Flash.

    Some of the apps are Java apps (instead of Flash). If it is a Flash app, it will probably display the "Install Flash" message. If it is a Java app, it won't be able to be played on a mobile browser. I don't know any Android browsers that support Java apps.

    Facebook games do not work because they require flash plugin. If you side load adobe flash player and download Firefox which supports flash not chrome which does not, then you can get some to work now and again
