Good bye m.facebook.com. WELCOME 0.facebook.com – its free, its fast!
On Tuesday, May 18th, 2010, Facebook launched a new way of accessing Facebook anytime, anywhere: 0.facebook.com is a new mobile site. On this Mobile Site, you will not be able to view pictures [but who cares about photos on phone?]. However, you will be able to access all the key features of facebook. 0.facebook.com has been fully optimized for your phone for speed. For now it is available to 50 mobile operators in 45 countries. MTN Uganda is one of 50 mobile operators. I am so proud of MTN right now because, many youth will now get a chance to access mobile facebook with out having to worry about using up their airtime on data.
Mobile internet remains very slow in many countries including Uganda. This makes surfing sites like facebook on phone quite boring because of the slow connection. However, because there are not many choices, many facebook users still prefer to use their cell phones to update their facebook statuses.
Soon as I heard about the New *FREE Mobile Facebook, I couldnt believe, so I rushed to my phone, patched in 0.facebook.com – wow! Amazing. I was so out of words.
