Facebook Mobile

Facebook Mobile is a feature that allows a user to access Facebook from their cell phone through text messages, e-mails, downloaded applications or a web browser. Launched in 2007, Facebook Mobile was designed to give Facebook users the ability to view and update their pages on-the-go. 

Status updates, wall posts, and photo uploads can all be done through text and picture messaging, while logging on to the Mobile web site from your phone's web browser allows you to see friends' updates. Many smart phones also allow a user to download a Facebook application, which comes equipped with many of the the same features available on the standard web site. In May 2010, Facebook launched "Facebook Zero," a mobile web site which would acquire no data fees, on over 50 service providers around the world.
