Tata Docomo has introduced a new value added service related to social networking site FaceBook. The new service ‘ FaceBook Check-in ‘ works on USSD platform and it will not require any internet connection or GPS on mobile. Facebook Check-In service  basically allows a user to “Check-In” to a location over USSD. This Check-in will reflect on the user’s Facebook profile. Using this service a user  can share his physical location with other people on their network. Tata Docomo users can dial *325*50# and share their location on their Facebook page anytime, anywhere without using internet or GPS. Check in service will be charged at Re 1  per location check-in. The service leverages Tata DOCOMO’s location based platform to identify user’s location and thus eliminates the needof a GPS enabled phone. The service is first in the market brought together with their partners U2opia Mobile. In addition, TATA and U2opia Mobile have rolled out Facebook Messaging for users without mobile Internet on their phone.
