Facebook Announces Mobile App for Feature Phones

Posted Jul 13, 2011

Facebook has announced on their Facebook mobile page that they have a new app available: Facebook for Every Phone, designed to work on feature phones to provide a similar experience to the Facebook apps available for smartphones. The app works on Java-enabled phones, and Facebook has collaborated with some carriers to allow users 90 days of free data access to the Facebook for Every Phone app.

Facebook says that they’ve “collaborated with many carriers worldwide” for the free data access, and the list is impressive, but “worldwide” excludes North America, China, most of western Europe, most of Africa and more. The list of the specific carriers is on the the official announcement.
