Mobile Users to Connect Facebook without Net Connection

Mobile users can't resist chatting with friends on facebook and love to hang about connected on social networking?  At the present users need not to agonize about costs of money on internet usage. Singapore based software applications developer, U2opia Mobile, has developed a novel application for mobile phones that will permit them to access Facebook on all categories and brands of handsets, devoid of paying for a data connection.

Unstructured Supplementary Data (USSD) is the technology worked out by telecom players to launch alerts to their users. The technology to assist users to launch and scrutiny updates on their friends’ Facebook walls. U2opia announced this application on Tuesday with telecom major Bharti Airtel.

Facebook: The Missing Manual (Missing Manuals)

Airtel has announced for its customers that from now onwards they can update their Facebook status via this USSD service free of cost, but Rs1 per day will be charged for accessing the full-feature application, which allows screening news feeds, commenting on or liking news feed stories, posting on friends’ walls, authenticating friend requests, seeing notifications and adding friends.

India has not still able to digest the Smartphone hype as such and that is the main reason that internet on mobiles is limited to key cities and many users are debarred from accessing their Facebook accounts through mobile phones.
