With a new initiative named Facebook Flex, Smart is now offering Cambodians free access to Facebook.
Facebook has partnered with Smart Axiata, a telecommunications service provider company, to bring Free Basics to Cambodia. This means that Cambodian users will be able to access a range of basic internet services for free via Free Basics’ mobile website or through their mobile application. The Kingdom will be the 22nd country in the world where this project will be launched, providing an opportunity for internet usage in rural areas. This service will be available in Khmer as well as in English.
Facebook Lite – Facebook mobile engineered for emerging markets, especially those who have poor Internet connection. However, the project isn’t new.
Asia Pacific’s most exciting and innovative app competition is here, and the OzAPP Awards are seeking the region’s best mobile, web or cloud app.
Perhaps the most crucial time Facebook will go through is during natural disasters. Millions turn to the social networking platform to get updates or check on their family and friends. Safety Check, Facebook’s new initiative, is here to aid that process.
