With social networking fast becoming a core part of the lives of millions, it only makes sense to keep oneself connected 24/7. What better way than to have it on one’s phone? Keeping this sentiment in mind, Facebook has rolled out an app, which it claims functions on over 2,500 Java-enabled mobile phones. Called the Every Phone app, it comes with the popular social networking site’s most popular features – News Feed, Inbox, and Photos. Additionally, users can also upload their pictures, and also search for their phonebook contacts on Facebook.
One for all..
What’s enticing is that, Facebook has roped in several mobile service providers, including four from India, namely – Aircel, Airtel, Idea and Reliance and 16 others to offer free data access to users for a 90-day period. The site has also been optimized for different mobile platforms, so as to ensure that the data consumption is minimal compared to other apps.
