Facebook Lite launched at the Google Play Store

Can’t use the heavily-sized Facebook app on your low-end devices? You might want to take a closer look on the new Facebook Lite app for Android, giving you almost the same social media network experience for less of your storage space.


Built for the emerging markets, Facebook Lite offers its users full access the social networking service and use essential features also seen on the regular app such as browsing your news feed, adding pictures, comments, likes, shares and many more. The web-based app only eats less than 1MB of your storage, and it is designed to work for 2G networks with limited network connectivity by optimizing web page loads, enabling faster loads and providing more efficient data.


Sadly though, this isn’t yet available in the country as the app is initially offered to selected emerging countries such as Bangladesh, Nepal, Nigeria, South Africa, Sudan, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam. As always, there are ways to sideload the app into your smartphones if you know how to do the drill (READ MORE: How to get FB Lite on your Smartphone), or use a third-party Facebook app instead to suffice your need for social media.

    I’d also love to try out this app.. but my problem is that the Facebook app is pre-installed in my phone which means I can’t remove it unless I have it rooted :(

    Good move from Facebook devs, though. People keep complaining about the size of the FB app and how it eats up a LOT of RAM.
