Globe said the collaboration is a world-first, adding it worked closely with Silicon Valley-based Facebook for the initiative.

Available to all Globe Prepaid, Postpaid, and TM subscribers using feature phones and smartphones and accessing either through the mobile site of Facebook or the Facebook app, users can post, like, comment, chat, add friends, upload photos, share posts, and more on Facebook without the need for Wi-Fi.

Aside from offering Facebook at zero data charges, the collaboration between the two firms has also paved the way for subscribers to enjoy unique customer experience.

Working with Facebook engineers, Globe has put together innovations that cover key milestones in the customer experience journey such as availability of access on feature phones and smartphones across all Facebook mobile platforms whether via the Facebook app or Facebook?s mobile site; no billshock or ?nakaw load? as customers will be notified if they will incur data charges once a link that leads out of Facebook is clicked; and one-click registration to the data plan of choice to continue browsing without having to leave the site.

Customers with not enough prepaid load can ?loan? a 10MB data plan for only P10 which will be deducted on their succeeding top-up so they can explore content outside Facebook.

Subscribers can dial *143# and select FREE FB to know more about Globe Free Facebook.
