The new app offers access to the social network from over 2,500 different mobile devices.
Yesterday, the Facebook for Every Phone app was launched, which offers access to over 2,500 different mobile handsets and aims to boost international usage. The app includes Facebook’s main features; the News Feed, Inbox and Photos. You can also upload your photos and look for friends from your phone’s list of contacts.
The Facebook for Every Phone app is designed to tap into a wider audience, by offering its services to those of us who don’t own a smartphone. Facebook has also partnered with 20 carriers worldwide to offer free data access to their app for 90 days. It can be downloaded via m.facebook.com, by entering ‘d.facebook.com/install’ directly into your mobile browser, or from the app stores GetJar, Appia and Mobile Weaver.
