With this Free Facebook experience, even without extra load, you can still access and browse your Facebook account.

How to access? For now, you could try definitely within Mobile built-in browsers or direct use of Facebook App.

Globe Telecom is now giving FREE Access to Facebook over 36 Million subscribers for three months. Some users already enjoying the benefits, but as a tester (usually just ahead with the promo), I would really love to have this kind of free offering.

Working collaborating with this service, Globe Telecom and Facebook engineers collaborate to give subscribers great experience with free access to Facebook in all mobile platforms or via a Facebook app or mobile site m.facebook.com.

Along with this great news, Globe assures that it is NO BILLSHOCK or Nakaw Load to its customers.

Peter Bithos, Senior Advisor for Consumer Business at Globe Telecom said:
“Once again, Globe has proven that it is the mobile data service provider of choice by industry and technology leaders around the world with this breakthrough partnership with Facebook to give our 36 million subscribers uninterrupted, seamless, and worry-free Free Facebook experience. This is collaboration at its peak, which has resulted in the best and most innovative Free Facebook experience yet,” said Peter Bithos, Senior Advisor for Consumer Business at Globe Telecom. “
“Over the past months, the engineering, business development and marketing teams at both Globe and Facebook have worked together to plan and design the customer experience from scratch – which includes making the service available across all Facebook mobile platforms, rolling out a system that alerts users once they are about to click a link that will incur them data charges, paving the way for subscribers to easily subscribe to a data plan without having to leave Facebook, and allowing data access lending for subscribers who don’t have enough prepaid load to continue browsing links outside Facebook. This service testifies how Globe is transforming itself beyond just an access carrier. Globe is striving to be a leading digital brand catering to the needs of digital Filipinos who need to be connected to their social circles around the world.”

Globe understands the opportunities giving people access to the Internet brings and we’re thrilled to be working with them to give Globe subscribers access to Facebook without data charges across our apps and mobile website.”
