Facebook Now Available For Every Type Of Phone
Because no day can pass without Facebook, at least this is what happens nowadays in the technology era when we are almost addicted of the socializing networks, here is another news about this famous networking site.
They have just announced that will follow a launch of the application for all the types of mobile phones. This sounds really good for those that do not have smartphones. And this decision was taken by the CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, who has recently consulted a statistic which showed the fact that the majority of Facebook users are not PC users, but phone users. So, because the mobiles have contributed a lot in this raise of the Facebook’s fame, it is clear that they want to offer the possibility to all the users to access the site. And because the only ones that weren’t privileged were those who were not having a smartphone, the decision has been taken and it has been created a version for the non-smartphones too.
This new version will allow the users to see the News feed, the messages from the Facebook inbox and will also let them upload pictures, as well as letting them see the pictures and the modifications of their friends. So, mostly all the features will be available. Of course, that the interface is not that good looking as for the smartphones or the PC, but it is a way in which users can keep in touch with their Facebook friends.
Therefore, considering the statistics that show clearly that 83 percent of the grownups have a mobile phone, from which 42 percent have a smartphone, this means that by creating the possibility of all the users to have access at the socializing network, will definitely raise the chances to make them like it and use it. So, this was a quite smart decision that not only was meant to help people without smartphones, but was also meant to increase the number of Facebook users.
So, this application will be available from now on, on more than 2500 mobile phones. And if we consider the fact that people are not that eager to pay for apps, it is clearly that it is going to be for free. So, another white ball for them.
Therefore, for those who are really interested in this new mobile Facebook app, they can freely downloaded it from the company’s page for mobiles or, the can choose the apps stores as Appia, GetJar or Mobile Weaver. There are lots of options of downloading this app.
But I still have a curiosity: will this idea increase the popularity of the site? Or it will end up over saturating the users and creating the feeling of fatigue?11
