Facebook has partnered with 50 mobile operators, including Reliance and Videocon in India, to offer cellphone users in 45 different countries a text-only version, 0.facebook.com, of the social networking site that can be accessed without paying any data charges. According to Facebook, the 0.facebook.com site is only available on the networks of these operators.

“Using 0.facebook.com is completely free. People will only pay for data charges when they view photos or when they leave 0.facebook.com to browse other mobile sites. When they click to view a photo or browse another mobile site a notification page will appear to confirm that they will be charged if they want to leave 0.facebook.com,” Sid Murlidhar, a programme manager for Facebook Mobile, has said.

“Users can update their status, view their News Feed, like or comment on posts, send and reply to messages, or write on their friends’ Wall just as they do on Facebook.com. Rather than making photos viewable on 0.facebook.com, we put the photos one click away so they don’t slow down the experience. You can still view any photos on Facebook if you want but your regular data fees will apply,” Sid Murlidhar has added.
