Around 700 million people have Facebook accounts, but only a fraction of that number have smartphones. In an attempt to get even more people sharing and socialising on the move the world’s biggest social network today launched Facebook for Every Phone.

Designed to get even the dumbest of phones onto Zuckerberg’s money-spinner, it’s available on any Java enabled handset by pointing your Java browser to m.facebook.com or d.facebook.com/install.

Fire it up, and it turns the site into a mobile-optimised version not unlike the iOS and Android apps, laying out the News Feed, Inbox, Photos and Messages icons in a gird-like interface.

Gobbling up less mobile data to access, Facebook have managed to convince a handful of carriers across the globe, including the UK’s Three network, to offer free access to the site for the next 90 days.
