Setting another milestone in Philippine Telecommunications, Globe Telecom partnered up with social media giant, Facebook, and is giving FREE data access to Facebook for all of its 36 Million subscribers nationwide for an initial period of three months (Nov 2013 - Jan 2014) either through a Facebook app or through m.facebook.com on a mobile web browser.
Working with Silicon Valley-based Facebook engineers, Globe has put together innovations that notifies customers if they will incur data charges once a link that leads out of Facebook is clicked and provides one-click registration to a data plan of choice to continue browsing without having to leave the site. Meanwhile, customers with no prepaid load can "loan" a 10MB data plan for only P10 which will be deducted on their succeeding top-up should they wish to explore content outside of Facebook.

*Offer is available to smartphone users except Blackberry. Free Facebook will soon be available to Nokia Xpress and Opera Mini users.
