Now Use Facebook On Airtel Without Internet or GPRS
So now you can use Facebook on your Mobile having Â Airtel GSM Connection without Internet or Any GPRS plan. U2opia a Singapore based softwareÂ developmentÂ company has partnered with Airtel and has developed a Application which uses a part of GSM connectivity ( USSD Technology ) to deliver Facebook Updates Â and enable userto Update Status, comments etc. The USSD technology is the same which is used to provide user alerts such as Balance updates at the end of calls, Flash messages etc.Â The Application has been developed keeping in mind the slow penetration of smartphones through out India. The service will suit best to Low End Phones which do not have Smartphone Capabilities. Though you will not be able to view graphics and videos.It isÂ similarÂ to text message service so having negligible load on the Network.
Airtel customers can update their Facebook status through this service free of cost, But customer will have to pay Rs 1 per day for accessing all the features, which enables viewing news feeds, commenting on or liking news feed stories, posting on friends’ walls, confirming friend requests, viewing notifications and finding as well as adding friends.
Airtel users can dial *325# and *fbk# for non-qwerty mobile handsets to access Facebook without subscribing to data plans !
The Application is indeed promising and helpful, but it would be great if they Integrate Twitter Also !
