How is Facebook Lite Helpful for Android Users?
The major reason why Facebook came up with Facebook Lite was to cater to all the users around the world who make use of the 2G Mobile network. It is a fact that more than 95 percent of the world’s population still makes use of the 2G network. The regular Facebook application is a large size, takes up a lot of space in mobile phones, eats into the phone’s battery, and leave little to no space for other applications to be downloaded by the user into the device. Also, the regular Facebook app is not very useful when the internet connection is slow or is distorted. The downloading process of videos or photos was becoming difficult for the users and hence Facebook was becoming a tough experience to be used as an application for the users. And on top of that, in order to send private messages, a user must download the Facebook Messenger app as well.
The Facebook Lite application helps the users overcome all these problems. It is of a very small size and hence takes very little space leaving a lot for other apps. Pictures and Videos can be download and uploaded with great ease and with great speed with the help of Facebook Lite and the Facebook Lite application has its very own messaging feature that is much like Facebook Messenger, so private messages can be sent it to the friends without having to download a different app altogether.
