To fuel Facebook’s 1 billion users growth, Facebook is offering a Rs.50 or $1 credit to new users in India and Rs.50 for referrals. The offer is apparently only available through a promotional link: http://m.facebook.com/tt. and the user will have to sign up through mobile phone. This was reported by Machine Happy and they also tested the process with a new number and succeeded in registering. The airtime credits are supposed to take three days to process.
The company says India will be largest user base soon, to promote this growth Facebook earlier this year added a number of Indian languages to its phone app in hopes of attracting more users. Facebook has topped the list as the most valuable brand in the world among news media, social media as it officially passed 1 billion active users. With China out of the question Facebook says Indian market has more potential as India’s online population stands at 121 million.
