Stay connected on Facebook without internet

Facebook buffs can now use the social media platform without internet connection on mobile phones



Now Facebook can be used on mobile phones without access
to internet. The social networking website is made available to all its users on mobile phones without internet connection by a Singapore based software application developer U2opia.This application works without the GPRS connection via Unstructured Supplementary Data (USSD) which is normally used to send alerts to the mobile phone users about currency used at the end of a call.

According to sources at U2opia  this application is similar to an SMS used to send updates with negligible load on the network. A user can receive alerts,post updates and know activities around with the application. Updating posts is free of cost for Airtel customers but to avail all other features, users have to pay rs.1 everyday which will be deducted from their phone balance.

U2opia has joined hands with the Bharti Airtel to introduce this venture in the country. Non-Qwerty mobile users can dial *325# and *fbk# to access facebook without data plans.Officials at U2opia claim that introduction of smart phones having networking sites like facebook with such  an applications as an add on will see immense response
