Call Your FaceBook Friends Using the Jajah App
By: Prashanth Shantharam  |  13, April 2011

Jajah’s Android app (iPhone app is on its way) enables you to call any of your online facebook friends, anywhere in the world, for free. Jajah charges you no fee to connect you with your friends. However, your mobile operator may treat it as a local call and could levy appropriate charges. It’s totally free for the receiver who takes the call from within FB.

Do check out the video that further explains how the app is used.

The service is available to US + Canadian citizens at the mo!

The company had the following to say regarding the service

“JAJAH is the first service to work within Facebook. Simply click and call, no further downloads, no complexity and no charge. Anyone can now call Facebook’s 500 million users across the world for just the cost of a local call straight from their mobile phone.”
“We listened to our users who told us repeatedly that more and more of their interactions and communications happen within Facebook and away from traditional services such as instant messenger. The only missing capability was voice, and now JAJAH has bought that in too”.

Yes, voice sure is the missing capability on FB. I’m wondering how long must we wait for Skype/esque functionality to be launched on Facebook.

    "Mobile is fundamentally reshaping how we as consumers spend from housing and healthcare to entertainment and travel, from food and drinks to communication and transportation. Mobile not only influences purchase behavior but also post purchase opinions. When the share button is literally a second away, consumers are willingly sharing more information than ever before. Mobile is thus helping close the nirvana gap for brands and advertisers who seek to connect advertising to actual transactions. The long-term battle is however for owning the context of the users. Having the best knowledge about the user to help drive the transaction is the simply the most valuable currency of commerce.” -- Chetan Sharma State of Global Mobile Industry Report1H, 2011
