CITING strong demand for one of its biggest promos to date, Globe Telecom is extending its free Facebook offer available to its over 36 million subscribers until February 14, allowing users to post, like, comment, chat, add friends, upload photos, and share posts without the need for Wi-Fi.

Globe collaborated with Facebook last year to offer its postpaid, prepaid, and TM subscribers access to the leading social networking site on mobile at zero data charges, alongside first-of-its-kind mobile innovations that address fear of mobile browsing, making the telco’s Free Facebook offer a world-first.

Among these customer experience innovations include accessibility on feature phones and smartphones across all Facebook mobile platforms whether via the Facebook app or Facebook’s mobile site m.facebook.com.

Customers are also guaranteed of no billshock or “nakaw load,” as they will be notified if they will incur data charges once a link that leads out of Facebook is clicked.

For a seamless experience, subscribers can also enjoy a one-click registration to the data plan of choice to continue browsing sites or links outside Facebook without having to leave the site.

In the spirit of customization, recommended data plans consider a subscriber’s available prepaid balance and/or megabytes (MB) balance of existing data plan.

Customers with not enough prepaid load can “loan” a 10MB data plan for only P10, which will be deducted on their succeeding top-up so they can fully explore content outside Facebook.

“Due to the overwhelming response and take-up from our subscribers, we are happy to extend Globe Free Facebook until February 14 to allow more users to enjoy an innovative, seamless, and worry-free Free Facebook experience, anytime, anywhere. As the country’s leading digital brand and preferred partner of technology leaders around the world, we hope to get more Filipinos online on their mobile devices and be part of a wonderful, connected world,” said Peter Bithos, chief operating advisor of Globe.

Subscribers can dial *143# and select FREE FB or text FREEFB to 8888 to download more information or access Free Facebook. Subscribers may also go to m.facebook.com/free on the phone’s web browser or open the Facebook mobile app while on the Globe network to access Free Facebook. (PR)
