Globe offers free Facebook access to subs




It started with Twitter, now Globe announced that they’ll also offer free access to the Zuckberg-owned social media account starting on October 31.

The free FB access doesn’t require any SMS subscriptions. All there’s left for a Globe subscriber to do is logon to m.facebook.com using their smartphone’s browser.

As long as you don’t click on an outbound link, the service will not incur additional data charges to your load or postpaid bill. However, if you did click on an external link, you’ll immediately be notified about the charges which, in the case of an out of load prepaid sub, can be deducted on the next top up (10MB for Php10).

Globe’s free Facebook access is slated to begin on the 31st of this month and and will run until January next year.

    Will it still be free if you access Facebook through its app if you’re using a smartphone?

  3. nakawanaoki says:

    Medyo delikado sa mga Postpaid users lalo na if your using non rooted android phone.So better use prepaid sim for this free service.

  4. chrisaki says:

    so that explains why I got a notification about using free data when I opened my facebook app on my tab earlier..

    it’s… a… trap……

  7. Kamote says:

    sa ibang bansa tulad sa Africa, libre ang facebook pero text only via . sana pati dito sa Social Media capital of the world tulad ng Pinas, libre din.

    “in the case of an out of load prepaid sub, can be deducted on the next top up (10MB for Php10).” – correct me if i am wrong, if i clicked a link that opens another site, and it uses up 10 pesos worth of data, and i have no balance at the moment; the next time i load worth 20 pesos, my load gets deducted 10 pesos automatically? can’t they just not load the website in the first place? as the post above says, it’s a trap!

    • pulubi says:

      not a a trap. thats democracy and capitalism at work, lols

    • Dicube says:

      @sonex its an option and ignorance of your gadget and what your browsing will not excuse you from paying what you used up.

    • mang kanor says:

      “ignorance of your gadget” BIG WORD!!!

      alam mo naman siguro na once binuksan mo ang mobile data mo, lahat ng app mo tulad ng fb messenger, viber, kakao talk, line, wechat, etc eh magtritrigger ng outbound request para mag fetch ng data. pwera nalang kung may i-provide silang ibang APN na strictly domain lang ng fb ang maaccess. pero dahil PWEDE ang outbound link, ibig sabihin pwede ang request to other domain. kaya nganga ka pag nagkataon.

    does this work on BB?

  11. kya pla dme nkatay na free browse na ip. -_-
    pede b khit 3rd party browser like om? or pang built in lang.

  12. GhostShadow says:

    What if the subs is on Unlisurf plan, will Globe still incur charges on top of the monthly bill?

    • tobimagwire says:

      if naka unlisurf na ang subs then hindi na sya ma charge on top of the monthly bill, applicable lang to sa mga hindi naka unlisurf and still want to check their fb account.

      just launch it on the browser and not on the app itself

    • mang kanor says:

      anong katol ba ang nasingot mo pare? unlisurf na nga eh. kailangan pa bang i-memorize yan?

  13. jax siga says:

    What happens if you have other apps working in the background, like watsapp or viber, even your email app?

  14. Ryan says:

    WTF! ayusin nyo muna ung connection speed ng mga post paid subs ninyo. ok lang magbigay ng free pro sana naman unahin nyo ung mga nkaplan.

  15. RaM says:

    pag-on mo sa settings ng data, yung ibang apps mag-update naman. =(

  16. Diana says:

    Hi, can i use free fb for globe users using my not-so-techie phone? It is not android, however, it has a browser. Thank you very much!

    • enlightened1 says:

      Hi Diana! I think you can. I was able to access free fb either on smart or sun using my ancient nokia 5310 xpressmusic. :)

  17. nobody says:

    tanggalin nyo na rin yung 800mb usage capping nyo for prepaid subs hehe

  18. freefb says:

    Nakaka-free FB ako sa laptop ko. Gamit ko yung tattoo 3g sim sa broadband stick.

    Ang dami kong link na na-click kahopon pero di naman bumukas yung external site. Ma-charge pa rin kaya ako pag nag-load ako?

    • mang kanor says:

      hugutin mo ung sim ng broadband stick mo tapos tapon mo na sa kanal. kasi pag nag load ka, kakainin nila agad. haha

  19. Trapper says:

    Muka patib0ng nga t0h sa mga wala kamalay malay na kala nila free fb br0wsing na but may nak0c0nsume na pala 0utside 0f fb..tama un sinabe nun 1, dpat di na lang mag l0ad mga site labas ng fb. Pure fb br0wsing n0 malice hehe..

  20. Al says:

    Doesn’t work well if you have regular load on your phone. Once you enable data connection on smartphones, it automatically charges you 5 pesos for 15min. Free facebook is mostly useful for non-smartphones or keep your Globe prepaid with just 1 peso load to enjoy free facebook.

  21. arnel says:

    may nakalagay naman na u’ll be notified na may charge pag pumunta ka sa outbound link,so, nasa user na un kung tumuloy siya. .but still for me panloloko yan, kasi kung talagang free, wala na dapat paliligoy,magset nalang sila ng apn na free. .tapos!

  22. ares says:

    How do you DISABLE the service?

    thanks.. cause I’m already unli-internet anyway, but I accidentally clicked on the free link, and now it’s telling me it’s going to charge me if I go out of facebook mobile site..

    thanks.. I just want to disable it

    • Ryan says:

      I think we shouldn’t be charged. UNLI data nga eh. db?

    • mike says:

      I want to disable as well since I have unlidata. It notifies me about data charges if I click a link. Its just annoying everytime.

      Ryan: what he means is unli na nga tayo. Dapat di na tayo inotify ng ganyan kasi nakakagulo lang lalo

  23. rocketlog says:

    I’m trying to figure out din kung pano i-disable yun sa FB app. Instead of just going straight to the browser when I tap a link, dadaan pa sya sa isang dialogue screen asking me if I wanna get an unli data package. It’s annoying as hell.
