Facebook has announced a new version of their mobile app for Android, the app is called Facebook Lite and it is basically a stripped down version of the Facebook mobile app.
Facebook Lite is designed to use less data than the standard mobile app, Facebook is targeting the app at emerging markets.
More than a billion people around the world access Facebook from a range of mobile devices on varying networks. In many areas, networks can be slow and not able to support all the functionality found in Facebook for Android. Facebook Lite was built for these situations, giving people a reliable Facebook experience when bandwidth is at a minimum.
Facebook Lite is less than 1MB so it is fast to install and quick to load. It includes Facebook’s core experiences like News Feed, status updates, photos, notifications and more.
