Do you envy Smartphone users because their status messages are updated every 10 seconds? Well now, you can do the same. Facebook has launched their mobile site for low-end phones and it is said that the site will be free of cost, i.e. you don’t pay for data charges.
The site is developed in partnership with Snaptu and will run on more than 2,500 phones which include those from Nokia, Sony Ericsson, LG and Samsung. Facebook has already made deals with carriers across various countries like Brazil, Tunisia and Romania to make the site free of data charges for 90 days to start. It is also said that there are more agreements on the way which include a longer term of no-fees plan.
Program Manager at Facebook, Mark Heynen wrote on Facebook's blog on Wednesday, “The app provides a better Facebook experience for our most popular features, including an easier-to-navigate home screen, contact synchronization, and fast scrolling of photos and friend updates,”
Earlier, Facebook had come up with Facebook Lite which was also targeted at low-end phones, but that was more of a short-lived plan. Anyhow, if you do access Facebook, let us know about your experiences.
