My wife started a Facebook account on her Android LG cell phone. She can open her page automatically no problem from the phone but cannot sign in on our PC. She had set up  the necessary Gmail account but when she tries to log in to Facebook from the PC she gets a message saying the email address is invalid. I would appreciate any suggestions on what to do about this.

Just to be sure. She created the Facebook account using the Android Facebook application? Then later on tried to use the email address associated with the Android application when logging in on the PC. For whatever reason the email address used with the Android app is not correct according to Facebook when using the website on the PC?

Have you tried accessing Facebook's help page and asked for log in assistance?

Without knowing the email information I'm really limited with my ability to diagnose what could be the issue. Facebook would be your starting point with troubleshooting your issue, in my opinion. As they have the ability to confirm what login information was used to begin with.

Did she sign up using an email address using the phone number assigned to the device? If so it wouldn't be the same as signing up using an email. After first using the facebook ap on the phone it registers the phone number. You would clear it and attempt to sign in with the email you used if you signed up originally on a pc. Make sure she hasn't initially signed up using her 10 digit phone number
