    Scroll back and forth from left to right until you find the Facebook icon, which is the blue square with a lowercase F.
    Where this icon is located depends on how your phone is set up. Give a single press to the Facebook icon, which will open Facebook.

    We're not interested in checking in, updating statuses, or doing any of the things that Facebook would generally like us to do.
    Instead, tap the icon with three short lines at the top right. It is the icon within the white part, and not the one in the blue part at the very top.

    Soon several options will appear at the top of the screen.
    Without lifting your finger, drag the Facebook icon to the Uninstall option, which is the third one from the left. It is a trash can, and it turns red with a bouncing lid when you drag the icon over it. Once you do that, let go.
