Facebook recently made a new Java-based mobile application available to a wide number of feature phones. Facebook for Every Phone offers a standard set of Facebook features, including news feed, inbox, and photo galleries. The app can also be used to upload photos and find friends from the phone's contacts. According to Facebook, the application is compatible with over 2,500 different phone models around the world. Facebook said that it took pains to make sure that the application uses as little data as possible so that more people can afford to use it. The new application represents a change in stance from Facebook, which as recently as March indicated that it wanted to use the mobile browser as the vehicle for Facebook access. At the time, it rolled out a new HTML5 browser version of mobile Facebook that provided a more feature-rich experience. The new Java-based app mostly supplants the need for the HTML5 browser edition of Facebook.

omg I hope this isn't what I just downloaded

Okay I just downloaded the facebook app yesterday and it is insane!! It asks me every half a second if I want to continue using data after suggesting I have an unlimited data plan or whatever. I really hope that is not the app they are talking about because it is driving me crazy and I have gone through all the settings and can't find anything to stop that stupid thing from popping up. It makes the app completely unusable! 👿
And to think I was gonna get a phone with Java capability!? Thanks, minx!
