As a part of its initiative at giving folks across the world better access to Facebook, the social media giant has released Facebook Lite for Android.By Jake Godin | June 5, 2015
In a move to reach budding markets far and away from its home in Menlo Park, California, Facebook released a new app called Facebook Lite on Thursday.
The idea is simple: Some parts of the world just don’t have the bandwidth to handle using the normal Facebook app or its mobile webpage.
Enter: Facebook Lite. Billed as less than a megabyte in size, Facebook says the app will help folks in countries with poor bandwidth or low-tech phones connect to its social media network.
