Facebook is by far, one of the top social networks is both by quality and number of users. The service is over fifteen years old, and it helps millions of people stay in touch each day.
Though it started as a mere social network, it is now way more than that. It can transfer data, share locations, make audio and video calls, transfer money, play games, and much more!
What Is Facebook Lite?
However, as time passed, the app grew in size and functionality, so much that a consistent number of users noticed that the experience started to get laggy and unpleasant.
Thankfully, Facebook had just the solution for that – Facebook Lite.
Facebook Lite is a less-demanding version of the full-fledged Facebook app. It has fewer animations, fewer functions, smaller in size, and can run on most devices, which the developers had in mind when they worked on it!
Facebook Lite works under the Facebook umbrella, which means that it has a dedicated team of programmers and engineers to keep making it increasingly better and optimize the app to make it smoother and less demanding.
To update the app, either keep auto-updates turned on, and your device connected to a stable network, or download the newest version manually from Google Play or a third-party vendor.
However, we suggest that you avoid third-party app markets, as you never know what viruses lurk among seemingly harmless files.
It is wise to keep Facebook Lite updated to ensure that you don’t miss out on new content or reliability features.
We appreciate the company’s effort to make the app as accessible as possible for those who own older or less capable devices.
