The date was 10 May 2010, it was the day Facebook introduced ‘Facebook Zero, a moblie version of Facebook meant to be fast and FREE! . In Ghana Facebook Zero is currently available on Airtel and MNT.
Facebook Zero is meant to be the new way for FB users access Facebook anywhere, anytime: 0.facebook.com. It includes all of the major features of Facebook but is has been optimized for speed. The key difference thought is images – instead of making photos viewable on 0.facebook.com, FB put the photos one click away so they don’t slow down the experience. However users are able to still view any picture but at regular data fees charged by the mobile operator.
Using 0.facebook.com is completely free on networks (currently MTN and Airtel).
