Facebook launches mobile app for feature phones

So far, you were able to Access Facebook anytime, anywhere on almost any smartphone in the market: iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Windows Phone, and so on. But what about feature phones? If you’re still using one of those, we’ve got good news for you: Zuckerberg’s company  just announced that they’re launching a new mobile app to make Facebook “available to as many people as possible”.

The new Facebook app for feature phones will make sure the social network is available to 14 new mobile operators from all around the world, and more than 2,500 new devices. According to Mark Heynen, Facebook Mobile Program Manager,

The app provides a better Facebook experience for our most popular features, including an easier-to-navigate home screen, contact synchronization, and fast scrolling of photos and friend updates.

The best thing about this announcement though is the fact that Facebook has made all the necessary arrangements with mobile operators to make the site available without paying for any extra charges, at least for the first 90 days after the launch.
