New launches

Facebook has launched 0.facebook.com, a mobile site that includes all of the key features of Facebook but is optimized for speed.

It initially is available through more than 50 mobile operators in 45 countries and territories with zero data charges.

The site is designed to help solve the barriers in using Facebook -- sometimes the experience is too slow to be fun and the cost of data plans, and understanding them can be daunting.

Soon, 0.facebook.com will also be available from the following operators: Telstra in Australia, Movistar in El Salvador, SFR in France, XL in Indonesia, DiGi in Malaysia, Telecom NZ in New Zealand, SMART in the Philippines, Vodafone in Qatar, Digicel in Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago, 3 in the UK, and MTN in Cameroon and Guinea Conakry.
