Facebook Mobile App for Feature Phones Unveiled

Facebook Mobile App for Feature Phones Unveiled

Avail free data access for trying the app from select operations

           As of now, the Facebook Mobile App is available only for Android, iOS and BlackBerry platforms. Considering the popularity and usage of the social network on the go, Facebook has partnered with Snaptu to introduce a new Facebook mobile app for more than 2,500 feature phones from Nokia, Sony Ericsson, LG, Samsung and others. Facebook has also tied up with mobile operators from across the world to offer the app tryout without having to pay any data charges. This Facebook app apparently looks pretty much the same like the one on iOS, Android and BlackBerry platforms. When the app loads, you get to access your Facebook account news feed, messages, events, friends list, photos, requests, search and notifications. Of course the Facebook app won't be as fluid and responsive as the one for full blown touchscreen phones.
