Facebook starts on Applications for Every Phone

Face book is acceptance the actuality that not each one is on a smart phone. Consumers by normal mobile phones can at the present download the social network's Facebook for Every Phone application.

According to the corporation, users will be able to see their News Feed, check for messages in their Inbox, and view photos. Users can also upload images and find friends from their contacts list.

A great deal of Facebook's growth can be accredited to mobile devices. The social network's co-founder and CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, said last week that the location now has 750 million active users. A whopping 250 million active users entrée the social network from their mobile proposals.

Though Facebook already offers smart phone applications for iOS and Android, in the middle of other platforms, its decision to hug characteristic phones is a smart one, considering the sheer number of people who still aren't using a smart phone.

For Facebook, a key limitation of trait phones is that most consumers don't characteristically pay for data on those platforms. And the social network's app requires data to function.

Facebook recognized that reality in its blog position announcing the new app, and said that it has joined with a host of carriers around the world to offer users free data for 90 days to address that problem.

Amazingly, Facebook did not include any U.S. based carriers in its list of companies providing gratis data. The social network did not immediately respond toward request for comment on whether or not the free data offer is being extended to folks in the U.S.

According to Facebook, its application is available on more than 2,500 mobile phones. People interested in using the application can surf to the company's mobile page, scroll to the bottom, and click the download connect. It's also available in application stores GetJar, Appia, and Mobile Weaver.
