Facebook for Every Phone allows you to use the social network on more than 2500 handsets
A new Java app from Facebook has been created for use on more than 2500 phones, and uses less bandwidth than other access solutions, says the FB team. Data traffic generated by Facebook for Every Phone will be free for the first 90 days of usage on some carriers, including Three UK, but none in the US.

The app allows you to play around with all of Facebook's basics like News Feed, Inbox, and Photos, while enabling you to upload photos directly from the phone, as well as find friends from your handset’s contacts.

Facebook for Every Phone can be downloaded from the social network's mobile version of the site, or by entering d.facebook.com/install directly in your mobile browser. GetJar, Appia and Mobile Weaver application stores also have the app in their catalog. Watch how to install Facebook for Every Phone in the video below.

Google + Is much much cleaner (I have an account). Facebook has WAY too much going on. But it's more widespread. I'm sure google will take over the world with G+ like they did with Android!

It won't work on any Verizon feature phones. Verizon uses BREW instead of Java on their basic phones. But if you want a Facebook app for your Verizon feature phone, an app called Social Beat is a pretty good option. I used to use that before I got a smartphone.

The app is actually the Facebook app launched by Snaptu at around beginning of the year. Tweaked a bit to optimise it for basic Java phones. But then Snaptu was acquired by Facebook at around March 2011. So this is very much a Facebook product.
