Because there’s always something new coming from Facebook direction, isn’t there?
Facebook just announced Facebook Lite, a new version of Facebook for Android that uses less data and works well across all network conditions.
It seems with more than a billion people around the world accessing Facebook from a range of mobile devices on varying networks ther is a proper need for a lighter version. In many areas, networks can be slow and not able to support all the functionality found in Facebook for Android. Facebook Lite was built for these situations, giving people a reliable Facebook experience when bandwidth is at a minimum.
Facebook Lite is less than 1MB so it is fast to install and quick to load. It includes Facebook’s core experiences like News Feed, status updates, photos, notifications and more.
Starting on 4th June Facebook Lite will be first introduces in countries across Asia, and over the coming weeks Facebook Lite will be available in parts of Latin America, Africa and Europe.
