Millions of users of non-smart phones in Nigeria can now enjoy the privilege of using their phones to connect to Facebook without internet connection on Nigeria’s next generation network, Globacom.
This service can be accessed on the Globacom network by dialling *206# before following the sms prompts to conclude the process.
Globacom said in a press statement over the weekend that the service will cut across all segments.
Ordinarily, customers are required to purchase data and hook to the internet only on smart phones before gaining access to social platforms including Facebook.
With this service, the Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) is leveraged as an access medium for smart and non-smart phone users to connect to their Facebook accounts and carry out primary Facebook activities such as news feed, my status, like or comment, finding friends, requesting for friends and more.
“As a home-grown telecom company making Nigerians proud, Glo Mobile is proud to offer subscribers the most innovative services at the most pocket-friendly rates,” the statement said.
According to Globacom, the introduction of Facebook without internet is a clear testimony that the company is a premium brand with innovative services designed to meet the expectations of all its customers.
