Facebook launches Free Mobile Access Site

May 19, 2010

Popular social networking site Facebook has got a new mobile version: 0.facebook.com. And it is free! The new slimmed-down version includes all of the key features of Facebook but is optimized for mobile access and speed. Initially it is available through more than 50 mobile operators around the world. On those select network, users can access 0.facebook.com without incurring data charges.


0.facebook.com includes all the key features of the standard mobile site of Facebook. On this new mobile site users can update their status, view their News Feed, like or comment on posts, send and reply to messages, or write on their friends’ Wall just as they do on Facebook.com.

The only catch is users can’t view photos directly! To view a photo you need to pay for regular data charges. So, 0.facebook.com is completely free and regular data fees will apply only when you view a photo or you browse another mobile site. A notification will appear to confirm you that you will be charged if you click a photo link or if you leave 0.facebook.com.
