On May 18, the day that 0.facebook.com launched, Facebook also filed to trademark the logo for the fast-loading and free mobile service.

The 0.facebook.com site is intended to get Facebook in the hands of more mobile users, and get those users buying mobile data plans from their local carriers. It allows users to access some text-based features of the Facebook site without having a data plan, including publishing status updates and reading news feeds. However, Photos and other parts of the site won’t display unless users pay their carriers to get access.
