Today, we are launching another way for people to access Facebook anytime, anywhere: 0.facebook.com. 0.facebook.com is a new mobile site that includes all of the key features of Facebook but is optimized for speed. It initially is available through more than 50 mobile operators in 45 countries and territories with zero data charges.Collaborating with operators from around the world, we developed this new mobile site with two main attributes:
- It’s fast: 0.facebook.com includes all the key features of our standard mobile site m.facebook.com. 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. Rather than making photos viewable on 0.facebook.com, we put the photos one click away so they don’t slow down the experience. You can still view any photos on Facebook if you want but your regular data fees will apply.
It’s free: Thanks to the help of mobile operators we collaborated with, people can access 0.facebook.com without any data charges. Using 0.facebook.com is completely free. People will only pay for data charges when they view photos or when they leave 0.facebook.com to browse other mobile sites. When they click to view a photo or browse another mobile site a notification page will appear to confirm that they will be charged if they want to leave 0.facebook.com
I actually read this news some time back and was waiting on when Digi would actually roll it out. And today they posted an update on their Facebook page saying that they are officially launching Facebook Zero.
So I tested out Facebook Zero on my iPhone using both Safari and Opera but it didn’t work. So I switched my simcard to my Sony Ericsson C905 and managed to access http://0.facebook.com – please dont add the www because some people reported an error.
Note: This service is exclusively available for Digi customers only
