Facebook, owned by Mark Zuckerberg, is definitely one of the world’s top (if not still the no.1) social networks.
Facebook started around 2005 and in no time sent many social networks before it packing. With around 2.41 billion monthly active users as of the 2nd quarter of 2019, the social network is by many considered the biggest — what it has been for many years now.
Keeping users glued to the social network has been like Facebook’s major goal over the years. One of the many ways Facebook achieves that is the Facebook Free Mode.
Facebook Free Mode is a development between the popular social network and quite a number of network providers. The free mode let’s you use the social network with totally no data!
You can use the Facebook Free Mode on Airtel, MTN, 9mobile. Don’t know why really, Glo isn’t one of the networks you can use the free mode on, at least not yet.
How do you use Facebook Free mode? I’ll teach you just how below. You read on.
How to Use Facebook Free Mode
The Facebook Free Mode is easily accessible when you have zero data. Follow the procedures below to use the mode:
- Open the Facebook app on your phone.
- If the mode does not automatically activate, tap on the purple Go to Free Mode button at the top of the screen.
- If you don’t have the app installed, open free.facebook.com in your web browser.
- Tap on the Go to Free Mode button at the top of the page afterwards.
It’s that easy!
How Do You Deactivate the Facebook Free Mode?
One major disadvantage of the free mode is you won’t be able to see photos. If for this reason you want to go back to data mode or probably you now have data, simply click on See Photos within the app environment or on the website.
Here’s another way to deactivate the Facebook Free Mode:
- Open the Facebook app or website and make sure you’re in free mode.
- Tap on the ? mark just next to You’re in Free Mode.
- Tap on Disable this feature.
Or you can simply go to https://m.facebook.com/zero/toggle/settings and tap on Disable this feature.
Because of the fact that you can’t see photos when using the Facebook Free Mode, the development might seem not that amazing though; however, it’s way better than nothing. You can send and receive messages, access pages, catch up on clients, change your settings, and many more. Believe me, that’s way too cool for a free stuff.
