Facebook introduced a mobile application for feature phones, the least expensive, Internet-capable phones to outnumber smart phones in many parts of the world. Like Facebook applications for the Apple iPhone and other smartphones, the role of the Facebook application for mobile is designed to provide easy navigation, fast scrolling status updates and photos of friends, and sync contacts with your phone.
The new application runs on more than 2,500 models of mobile phones from Nokia, Sony Ericsson and other manufacturers, according to Facebook. But it is not immediately available everywhere.
For the first 90 days after launch, the service providers are not charged for data usage with the new application.
