Filipinos who canâ€™t stand five minutes without checking their Facebook accounts now have a way to stay connected with their â€œfriendsâ€ at a cheaper cost.
Globe Telecom Inc. announced in a statement the launch of its Super Facebook service, allowing users to enjoy their favorite social networking site on their mobile phones at a very affordable rate.
Exclusive to Globe prepaid subscribers, Globe Super Facebook is a mobile surfing plan that allows subscribers to surf on Facebook on their mobile phones for five straight hours for only P10.
The new service is part of the companyâ€™s efforts to increase the usage of Internet services with mobile phones.
This means that Globe Super Facebook users can enjoy Facebook for only P2 an hour. To access Facebook on their mobile phones, subscribers can open their mobile browsers and key in m.facebook.com, the company said.
â€œAs one of the most popular social networking sites in the world today, Facebook continues to evolve to provide its users with a slew of interesting features,â€ Globe portfolio management head Joanna Africa said.
â€œThrough this offer, we have brought the popularity of Facebook to our subscribersâ€™ mobile phones, making it more convenient for them to truly enjoy Facebook, their way,â€ she said.
To register for the service, Globe prepaid subscribers can text SUPERFB10 to 8888. A maintaining balance of P1 is required to enjoy the service.
Meanwhile, users who surf Facebook from time to time can subscribe to Globe PowerSurf, which is a consumable mobile surfing plan. Globe PowerSurf allows users to surf and stop as they wish and have full control on how they use their mobile Internet minutes.
