Facebook launches Facebook Zero, a text-only mobile site
Zero is a lightweight, (mostly) text-only version of the popular social network. It's designed to make Facebook more accessible, but also as a kind of gateway drug that mobile carriers can offer their users to tempt them into signing up for unlimited data plans and phones with better browsers. Looks like a smart move for both Facebook and whichever mobile partners get on board with Zero.
You can already check it out by pointing any browser to zero.facebook.com. Although you'll probably get a message saying your carrier doesn't support it yet, you can play around with it anyway.
Update: Seems I was mistaken. No carriers support Zero yet. I was just seeing the regular Facebook mobile site. Drop us a tip if you notice your mobile provider has rolled Zero out!
