The social networking giant, Facebook, is giving away free talk time to users based in India in an attempt to increase the number of Indian user-base. Recently, Facebook hit a new milestone with one billion user base on its network, and with this promotional offer, it is certainly looking to attract the non-Facebook users to join the site.
This promotion, in fact is to increase the number of mobile users as the Indian mobile market has rapidly grown the last five years. Hence, the free talk time offer is valid only if the user is registering from Facebook’s mobile site.
How to Get Free Rs 50 talk time from Facebook
Before you register, please make sure that you have not registered your number with Facebook before. That is, if you have an existing profile with the number you wish to receive the talk time, then you cannot avail this offer. However, you can always remove/delete the number from your current profile and avail this offer.
To register, go to this dedicated Facebook link – m.facebook.com/tt and enter your number, and your friend’s number who has referred/invited you, which is optional. In the next step, you will be asked to enter the basic details to create your new Facebook profile. According to Facebook, the new user will receive the Rs. 50 free talk time within three days of registering and confirming a code sent to their mobile number.
Users don’t have to provide their email id to register for a new account. Only a valid mobile number that is not already associated with any other Facebook account is required. However, upon creating a Facebook profile, you will be provided with a custom Facebook email id (firstname.lastname@example.org) after you pick your username/vanity URL.
We tried registering, however, we are still waiting for the talk time to be added to the phone’s balance. As of now, we cannot confirm when a user will receive the talk time, however, Facebook has promised that a user would receive it in under three days from the time of registration.
