How to get Google Analytics details from traffic?

In Google Analytics, when I view Traffic Sources >> All Traffic, I have these entries:

facebook.com / referral
(direct) / (none)
m.facebook.com / referral
t.co / referral

When I click them, there are no details, a common theme in GA.  How can I tell which page on those sites traffic came from?

I did setup several Google URLs, which have more details for links I'm using with the above sites.  This is for twitter.  I then go through bit.ly with the Google URL so I can track clicks and shorten the link.  But I guess that defeats the purpose?  Since I'm going through bit.ly, won't the referral be bit.ly?  But I don't see bit.ly as a referral.

I'm use to statcounter analytics, which blows GA out of the water.  But GA is what everyone uses and recommends.  So I use GA instead because having two analytics would be a performance hit.

After doing that, in the source column, I still see these types of entries:

facebook.com
(direct)
t.co
m.facebook.com

It isn't any different than before.
Right but you get them paired with the page which is what you want

Partially.  Is there a way to see the page on the referring site?
If you dig a level deeper, i.e. just Referrals and not All traffic then you can get Referral Path by clicking on each referral.

Thanks.  If facebook.com shows just a "/" or "l.php", do you know what that means?
