Its Fast, Its FREE: Its!

Good bye WELCOME – its free, its fast!

On Tuesday, May 18th, 2010, Facebook launched a new way of accessing Facebook anytime, anywhere: 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. 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 – wow! Amazing. I was so out of words.

Thank you MTN Uganda – Thank you Facebook.

Mark, are you in Uganda? What type of phone are you using? You have to check whether this service ( is supported by your phone (for example it won’t work on BlackBerry) and also that it is supported by your service provider (apparently, MTN Uganda is the sole provider of this service in Uganda). Let me know what service provider you are subscribed to and type of phone you are using….
