Glo Introduces Zero Naira Charge to Access Facebook
Globacom has introduced the Glo Zero Facebook, an exciting new offer which gives subscribers on the Glow network access to Facebook pages on their mobile phones free of charge.
Globacom's Marketing Coordinator, Mr. Niyi Olukoya, said with the Glo Zero Facebook, subscribers on the network would be empowered to network and socialise on Facebook without paying for data subscription.
"The implication of this service is that our subscribers can now keep in touch with their friends, family and even business associates on the social network site, Facebook from their Glo lines without having any data subscription or airtime on their phones," Olukoya said.
He advised subscribers to type zero.facebook.com, or o.facebook.com in the uniform resource locator (url) box on the web page to be able to enjoy the service, adding that the new mobile sites include all the key features of Facebook which are optimized for speed with zero data charges.
He also stated that customers would only pay for data charges when they view photos or when they leave 0.facebook.com to browse other mobile sites.
"When you click to view a photo or browse another mobile site, a notification page will appear to confirm that you will be charged if you want to leave 0.facebook.com", Olukoya said.
He explained that Zero Facebook was designed to solve the twin major challenges people around the world face when using the mobile internet, which is speed and cost of data.
