Good news guys! Globe just gave all of its subscribers an early Christmas gift, with the announcement that Facebook is now free for all Globe subscribers until Jan 25, 2014! That’s right, no need for a data plan if you want to access Facebook from your smartphones and Feature phones.
No wi-fi? No problem. As long as you have enabled internet settings from your phone and connect via the Globe Network, you will be able to access Facebook free of charge.
I’m excited to use this service since I’m on Facebook everyday where I manage my page and 360 Fitness Club’s fan page. Everyday, I get fitness questions and inquiries about 360 and it’s nice to have the assurance that I’ll always be connected to answer their questions. It’s very important to stay connected with your clients and members so that if there’s a concern, it is addressed immediately. Also, with my online coaching starting to gain some steam, it’s easier to monitor the results and posts of my clients on Facebook to make sure that everyone’s doing their program and seeing some progress.
Here are some screenshots of what you will see the first time you open Facebook once your account has been updated by Globe.
Also, you will see a black bar on top that says “Free Data” indicating that you can use it for free. And don’t worry because you’ll see an advisory page whenever you clicked other sites outside Facebook – and that, you’ll incur additional data charges if you proceed. If you already have a mobile internet plan, no need to worry because you won’t be charged extra for this as well.
This isn’t just a Globe project, they worked directly with Facebook with this one. Just check out the photo below.
This service is now available for everyone so if you don’t have a mobile internet plan, this is the best time to try it out. Enjoy the early Christmas gift!
