Do you know that it is possible to browse Facebook without having to subscribe to an internet plan? Well, the answer is YES ! Thanks to innovation in the telecoms sector. However, this innovation is made possible by Airtel, and hence, the service is for Airtel customers. Did I hear you say “Awwww” 🙂 ? ! Relax. I will bring you a similar good news soon from another service provider, probably yours. Airtel subscribers can now browse Facebook without hooking up to the internet via a service called FACEBOOK USSD.
You can do the following on your mobile device:
* Update Facebook status messages
* View, like and comment on posts
* Post on friends’ walls
* Find/add friends
* Confirm friend requests
* View notifications
* View and send messages
Any restrictions on phone type?
The service is irrespective of handset type, quality and active data (internet) connection. That’s really cool.
How do I deactivate the service
You can unsubscribe or deactivate the service by dialing *688*22#
* Daily subscription costs N5
* Weekly subscription costs N25
* Monthly subscription costs N100
That’s it. I hope this info was useful? If you are not on the Airtel network, please do your friends and family who are a favour by sharing this post. You can also like my Facebook page to get updates from this blog. Click here to go to the Facebook page.
