Three and Facebook are teaming up to release a new Facebook for ‘every phone’ application to enable users of even lower end handsets to get on board the social networking train.
Due to launch tomorrow, the application is said to be compatible with most phones that support Java and is optimised to hog less data and load faster.
To sweeten the deal further, Three customers will have free, unfettered access to the app for six months.
Charlotte Spencer, Director of Products and Services at Three, said: “Our customers love Facebook, which is why we are delighted to be able to offer them a new way to stay in touch and why we are extending the free offer to six-months rather than just 90 days.
“Although more and more of our customers are now using smartphones, this deal ensures that those on older handsets can still have a great Facebook experience on their phone – and can begin to see what the benefits would be of having All-you-can-eat data.”
Three’s move comes as networks rally to entice millions of users who have yet to get online with their mobile companions.
The app will be available to download tomorrow to all Three customers free of charge and be freely accessible until January 31st next year.
