Facebook is that one social media network that practically every living generation knows about. Over a billion users have signed up to this platform and it is hands down the biggest social media invention in history yet. Because of the florid of content and features Facebook offers, its mobile app is infamous for taking up too much disk space and memory on your phone and lagging the entire system. If your device isn’t extremely high performing or if you’re looking to save some memory and space on your phone then consider Facebook Lite instead. This app is an abbreviated version of the main Facebook application that promises to provide all of the main features of the app but at a minimum. It’s fast, lightweight and gets the job done!
Facebook Lite has quickly risen to popularity in the recent years with more and more users shifting to this app instead of the heavy main Facebook application. Facebook Lite is much faster in comparison and does everything you’d want from your main Facebook app. It lets you keep in touch with your friends, share and view images, update statuses, and much more. The best part is that it’s battery-saving and it won’t leech in too much of your battery as well as your memory.
The Facebook Lite app is considerably light in comparison to the main Facebook application and you can use it even on 2G conditions. There isn’t any restriction on sharing, viewing your timeline, liking or viewing photos, searching for people or editing your profile but there are limitation on some of the more heavier and memory-consuming features. On Facebook Lite, you won’t be able to watch videos or upload them. You also cannot access shopping pages or change too much of your settings through the app. There’s also a limitation on uploading display profile videos, adding Facebook stories or viewing them.
Although there are certain restrictions in the Facebook Lite app, you can still make use of most of the features to help you stay connected with your friends. Facebook Lite supports multiple communicating and socializing features including updating your Facebook status and sharing it on your timeline, searching for friends and pages, adding new friends, sending a quick inbox message to a friend, sharing and uploading photos, saving photos shared by your friends, finding local events and nearby locations, looking up local businesses and pages, and accessing your phone’s camera directly through the app for instant sharing.
Facebook Lite also supports notification alerts and you can choose to set them as per your preference. Other minor settings such as privacy, security, sharing and account settings can also be changed through this abbreviated version of the main Facebook app. If you’re an admin of a page or a group, you can also control your page through this app and make changes or edit the description of the page or group in question. Facebook Lite is a great app to have in your phone if you’re tired of the main Facebook application draining too much of your space, data and battery. It’s also a much faster alternative to the main app. However, not everyone is completely satisfied with how Facebook Lite performs. The app does tend to face occasional technical errors that can go uncorrected for days. There is also an issue with how comments on the application are viewed.
Facebook Lite is available to download for free from the app store on both Android and iOS devices. It does have a lot of advertisements though but that isn’t something unusual considering that the main Facebook app does as well.
