Facebook Mobile Site With No Data Charges

Posted by Ed Hansberry in "Windows Phone News" @ 04:00 AM

Facebook has launched a new site that for people in 45 countries using one of 50 carriers will not rack up any data charges. It is can be accessed at 0.facebook.com. It is a low bandwidth site, like the current m.facebook.com, but apparently the carriers will let Facebook site that begins with a "0" bypass the data counters. Presumably Facebook will pay the charges, or has worked out some sort of revenue sharing agreement based on advertising revenue.

I haven't seen a list of countries or carriers yet, but according to CNet, Brazil, Denmark, Greece, Hong Kong, India, and Turkey are included. France and the UK are on the roadmap. I guess for now, you'll need to check with your carrier to see if you qualify, unless someone here has found a complete list.

Trouble Viewing Our Mobile Site?

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Thoughts Media Status Updates" @ 03:00 PM

A quick tip for those of you who might have trouble viewing the stories on our mobile site: if, when using Internet Explorer Mobile you can't seem to select the story to read it, go into the Options > Connections screen of IE Mobile and change the network from WAP Network to The Internet. That should fix the problem. We're not sure why this problem happens - it only happens on some devices, and no in the software emulators we use for testing. We'd be grateful to anyone that could find a fix we could implement.
