TORONTO, ONT ? October 22, 2007 ? Award-winning Voice 2.0 company Talkster today announced a new calling application offering Facebook users completely free long distance, international and group conference calling. Built on Facebook Platform, a platform that enables companies and developers to build applications for the Facebook website, Talkster's Free World Dialing application not only delivers free calling, but also allows Facebook users to preserve the privacy of their personal phone numbers when calling or receiving calls from their Facebook friends worldwide.
?Talkster's Free World Dialing application for Facebook let's you call other Facebook users all over the world simply by selecting them from your friends list,? says James Wanless, Talkster Co-Founder and COO. ?Because you may not be comfortable sharing your phone number with some of the people you have in your friends list, Talkster never exposes your personal phone number. Couple this privacy element with our free long distance, international and conference calling features, and we believe the global Facebook community is going to love talking with Talkster.?
Other calling applications available on Facebook Platform offer discounted calling or limit free calls to VoIP. Not Talkster. Talkster's Free World Dialing application for Facebook lets people set-up group or one-on-one calls from any phone to any other phone. It doesn't matter if you are calling from a cell phone, a landline, your computer, a VoIP phone, or even from a voice-enabled instant messenger service like Google Talk, Yahoo!, AOL, or MSN; they will all work with the Talkster Free World Dialing application on Facebook, and the calls will always be free.
With Talkster's Free World Dialing application on Facebook people can set up their calls from their Facebook profile page, select the friends they want to call from their Facebook account, and even add other phone numbers from outside Facebook to be included in a group call. Advertising and special personalized offers for callers cover the cost of the calls.
The sixth-most trafficked website in the United States, Facebook is a social utility that offers an efficient way for people to stay connected with their friends and the people around them. A truly global community, Facebook users communicate and share information through the social graph, the network of connections and relationships between people from all over the world. Talkster's Free World Dialing Application aims to give the more than 47 million active Facebook users one more way to communicate, share, and get to know one another even better. Now no matter where they are located, Facebook users can speak live with their global Facebook friends - - for free.
