What if you are told that you can login and use Facebook on your mobile phone just the way you use its desktop version BUT without Internet or without worrying about Internet data usage? Yes, it is possible. We have tried this trick that helps the non-Internet mobile users access Facebook, the largest social networking website in the world, and it works.
Facebook users in India can access Facebook on any mobile without any Internet connection by dialing *325#. Facebook India has partnered with Fonetwish, a USSD (Unstructured Supplementary Service Data) service provider. USSD acts as browser to pull content to the phone, instead of using a regular browser.
According to Henri Moissinac, Head of Mobile Business, Facebook, “At Facebook, we are always exploring ways to enable people to easily connect and share with friends on Facebook wherever they are, whenever they want. This innovative USSD-based Facebook access service that will be offered by Airtel is another affordable and easy way for people to stay connected with their friends and family through Facebook.”
How does it work? Follow these steps:
Step 1: Dial *325# from your mobile.
Step 2: You will be prompted to enter your Facebook username and password.
Step 3: Enter your details to access free Facebook access.
Step 4: A message would appear offering you the Facebook Menu. Exit the message.
Step 5: Next message will ask you to choose from 8 options like News Feed, Update Status etc. Choose any.
Step 6: Now you can use all Facebook features at a nominal charge. Subscribe and get going!
