Facebook has achieved a new milestone! The company announced that its app – ‘Facebook for Everyphone’, launched in 2011 has crossed the 100 million mark. The fast and easy-to-use native app has successfully placed Facebook into the hands of the millions of people having limited access to Internet.

The app is capable of working on more than 3,000 different types of feature phones, simple in function. Highlight of the app is its design. Even simpler phone users can create a new account, find friends and access the most popular Facebook features, such as News Feed, Messenger and Photos. Moreover, it is optimized to use less data than other mobile sites, making it more affordable to try and use, regardless of the device.
