    Hello, I have the S7, recently (I think since the last Android Update on Dec 1, 2017), every time I select a link in FB, it doesn't direct me to Chrome and just opens the link inside FB. I even checked my settings to avoid this was in fact turned on. It's super annoying and I want to control the link access myself. Anyone knows what I can do to fix this?

    Welcome to Android Central! Just to be clear -- you went to the App Settings menu in the Facebook app, and made sure the Links Open Externally switch is on?

    I'm having the same problem. The issue is that Facebook has removed the "Links open externally" switch from the app settings. It's just gone.

    Hmm, well that's annoying. Another reason to ditch the app and just use the mobile site.
