Iraqi mobile operator Asiacell has launched the 'SMS to Facebook' service to its subscribers in the country.
The new service allows prepaid and postpaid subscribers of Asiacell to update their Facebook page, send messages to friends, add new Facebook contacts, and receive updates. In the next phase of the 'SMS to Facebook' service, Asiacell is to enable its subscribers to chat with Facebook friends and provide accessibility to 'like' photos and post comments.
Jamal Omer, product and services manager of Asiacell said that the 'SMS to Facebook' service is to meet the evolving telecom needs of Iraqis, particularly youth and students, at competitive pricing.
The monthly subscription to avail the ‘SMS to Facebook’ service is IQD 2500 ($ 2.14).
To subscribe to this service, Asiacell subscribers need to send '1' or 'F' to 1430 upon which they will be sent a welcome message and code to be entered into their Facebook account.
