Bharti Airtel has announced a new offer by which customers can keep in touch with friends and family on Facebook for free. Accordingly, customers accessing Facebooks’s mobile page – http://m.facebook.com from their Airtel connected phone can browse through news feed, post status updates and view friend profiles without charge.
To access the service, users must first enable Airtel Live services which is activated for free by texting ‘LIVE’ to 543210 (toll-free). Once done, users may get the Facebook link by texting ‘FACEBOOK’ to 54321 (toll-free).
Airtel’s offer is clearly in a move to encourage more users to use their mobile phone for accessing internet. Also, this is not an unlimited time offer. Airtel has noted that free access to Facebook will end on August 15, 2010.
Nevertheless, this is a wonderful offer which I believe many of you may be interested in.
