Globe brings you the real free mobile Facebook experience

Free Facebook access on mobile phones has been around before but usually it has limitations. You can only access the mobile version through your web browser and features are limited to mainly just reading and posting status.


Facebook’s VP of partnerships, Chris Daniels along with Globe Telecom CEO, Ernest Cu and host Robbie Domingo during Globe’s Free FB launch at the Globe Tower

Now Globe has partnered with Facebook to bring you the real free mobile Facebook experience whether you’re using a mobile browser or a Facebook app on your iPhone, Android, Windows Phone, Symbian, or even Facebook app for the feature phone. For some reason, Globe is saying Facebook for BlackBerry does not work with this promo.

Anyway, not only can you post status or read your news feed, you can also chat with people, add friends, post photos and videos, view any Facebook content including videos, and whatever your Facebook app is capable of doing. You can even sign up for a Facebook account without incurring any data charges with this promo.

All of these are for free whether you’re on Globe postpaid or prepaid, or even a TM subscriber. Once you click on an outside link, say a Youtube or a 9gag link, a prompt will say that regular charges will start and if you want to continue accessing that link. Still, this service will save a lot of bandwidth if you’re subscribing to MB-based data buckets.

Globe is targeting Filipinos who can only access Facebook when there’s free WiFi, usually those who own feature phones or semi-smartphones. With this free service, these Facebook users can access their account even without any load.

Along with this Free FB promo, Globe is now allowing prepaid users to get a 10MB data plan loan when they don’t have any load. They will be charged P10 on their next top-up.

“œFacebook’s mission is to give people the power to share and make the world more open and connected,” said Chris Daniels, VP of partnerships at Facebook. “œGlobe understand the opportunities giving people access to the Internet brings and we’re thrilled to be working with them to give Globe subscribers access to Facebook without data charges across our apps and mobile website.”

Globe’s real free FB access will start on October 31. Subscribers can dial *143# and select FREE FB to know more about this service.

  • jax siga

    just wondering, should you be on “data” and not on “time”? lets say im on time, and I have other apps on, like watsapp or viber, or even my email., wouldnt I be charged whenever I get a message or email from these other apps working on the background.

    Or should I change my subscription to data instead of time? thank you!

  • Jordan

    • on mo data mo tapos open mo FB app mo. meron nakasulat sa taas na Free. if wala, try again next month, baka di pa nakarollout sa lahat.

  • Pwede Po BA sa iPhone 5s ang free FB, patriot NAMAN Po KUNG meron…p

  • buknoy

    Hindi po ito totoo sa mga may load 5 pesos and up. nababawasan ng 5 pesos ang load mo for 15 minutes naka on ang data sa iphone.

    This is not totally free, so bullshit itong FREE FB kuno!
