Pretty much everyone is on Facebook now, and chances are, you use it a lot to keep in touch with your family and friends, share pictures, pass on news, and so on. Which makes Globe Telecom’s latest announcement all the more timely and important.

Globe and TM subscribers can now get free and full access to Facebook on Web, mobile, and app without data charges.

As of today, subscribers to any GoSurf data plan can get free and full access to Facebook on Web, mobile, and app (Android and iOS) sans data charges. They don’t even need to purchase any additional data plan and are not required to have a maintaining balance to be eligible for the promotion. By “full access,” I mean being able to stream videos uploaded to Facebook, view photos, post comments, and share content within the social networking site.

Globe and TM prepaid users who subscribe to any GoSurf plan automatically get free access to Facebook, while postpaid customers can opt-in to the promo by texting “FREE FB ON” to 8888. According to Globe, those who manage to register successfully will receive an SMS notification and will see a “No Data Charges” banner at the top of the Facebook website and mobile app.

If you recall, Globe was the first to announce a partnership with Facebook in 2013, which gave its subscribers free access to the social networking platform and thus drove mobile-browsing adoption in the Philippines.
