Facebook Lite is a new app that aims to make Facebook easier to use on mobile phones with less data. It’s an alternative for people who are on 2G networks or have a low-powered device. Facebook Lite takes up significantly less data than its bigger brother, Facebook, but still offers all the same features such as posts, chat and news feed. The app is especially great for places where internet connection isn’t fast enough or reliable enough. It also shows fewer ads so it saves users money if they want to use it as a more private social media site. Facebook Lite was launched in November 2017 and has been downloaded over 100 million times since then which is quite impressive given how much of an experiment it was at the time of launch.
