Why to Use Facebook Lite App

  1. Small app size – This Facebook lite app download is lighter under few Mb while the original Facebook app for Android takes a huge amount of storage space. Not only is it fast to download, the content is also downloaded faster. Obviously it will not have all the features of the full FB app, but all classic features are there like  Timeline, liking photos, searching people, and editing profile and groups and more.
  2. Less Data downloaded – It is primarily because it downloads low resolution images, and you can always click them to view in higher resolution. However, Facebook videos are not downloaded and will not run, because they are huge files and will require higher mobile data transfer speeds. It will also consume less memory and will not cause lower end mobile phones from hanging and crashing.
  3. Save Phone storage –  the very fact that less data is downloaded will save phone storage and those with low storage will find that they need not keep deleting app data to save space.
  4. Works on 2G! – Those with slow speed data plans using 2G or 3G will find this much better Facebook experience than the full app. I use a 4G data plan, but I find Facebook Lite very useful especially when on low internet connectivity areas or while subscribed to expensive data roaming plans while traveling to other cities or countries.

Too lite for you? – You can always download the standard full Facebook app and get the full experience anyways.
