It might be probably good news for the people of India who are currently by a great extent addicted to Facebook. People now a days are not even able to survive without Facebook. The major gadget which people use to access Facebook is mobile phone which must be at least equipped with multi-media function.
But now in a recent breakthrough, Facebook launched a facility for which there is no need of multimedia handset. You can access Facebook in your simple mobile which has no browser and can do little more than making phone calls, and even in remote places where there is no internet or no other form of data (EGDE/GPRS/3G) connectivity available. Facebook India with the association of Fonetwish has come up to bring Facebook on every mobile phone without requiring any apps or even the Internet.
How to Access?
What you need to do to get this service is – to just dial *325# to access this service, then enter your Facebook username and password and you are logged in. You can then send number based commands to access various features of Facebook, chat with friends who are online, add new people to your friends-list, and more. According to Fonetwish this service is currently available for Airtel, Aircel, Idea and Tata Docomo users in India.
I tried to access this service and of course it was a great experience. It works really well. It may be too much work to read your Facebook news, feed stories one by one but this is a good option to quickly update your Facebook status or for chatting with friends who are online. The price is reasonable too. You just have to pay a subscription fee of INR 1.00 per day for unlimited usage.
