About this app

With Free Basics, you can connect to Facebook and other websites for free using a SIM card from a qualifying mobile operator. Stay in touch with friends and family, search for jobs, check out news and sports updates, and get health information – all without data charges.

Free Basics includes websites like:

Websites vary by country.

Free Basics by Facebook is part of the initiative. We’re working with mobile operators around the world to make Free Basics widely available.

These mobile operators have agreed to not charge you for the data used to browse Free Basics. Data used beyond Free Basics, including but not limited to any minimum balance requirements and text messaging costs, may still result in standard rates and charges from your mobile operator.

I so love this app! And am so happy a nice platform has been created for reading. Atleast,this would enhance and encourage more people who doesn't like flipping through pages to be reading online instead. I'm really happy about this. And please,any time there's a new version please don't fail to let us know and keep on bringing nice,adventurous and exciting stories.. And long novels of course..

Hello Facebook team. The app is brilliant especially for students looking to research but my one problem is that it's not available to everyone. In south Africa only MTN and Cell C carriers have access it's capabilities but others including myself who have switched to Telkom do not have the same access. Please make it available to everyone. Thank You
