Facebook is the world’s most popular social media app and there is a good reason for that. Facebook is equipped with tens of useful features that have been specially designed to make it easier for users to keep in touch with their friends and family members. However, there is a big downside to Facebook. The app uses up lots of hardware power and internal storage space in order to run at peak-performance levels.
While this might not be a problem for people who use the latest flagship smartphones, the same cannot be said about people who use lower-end or mid-level smartphones. Fortunately, here is where Facebook Lite comes in and provides the perfect alternative.
Introducing: Facebook Lite
For those who are unfamiliar with Facebook Lite, they should know that this is a lightweight app. This means that Facebook Lite weighs lesser than the original version of the app and this takes care of the problems caused by the lack of internal storage space or microSD support. To top it all off, the software of Facebook Lite has been heavily optimized so that the app can run on any type of processors, not only the most powerful ones.
Even though Facebook Lite is a lightweight app, it still manages to offer the same number of useful features as the original Facebook does. Not just that, but Facebook Lite also benefits from full-fledged developer support which means that its performances and software stability are being improved on a daily basis via updates.
New 188.8.131.52.117 Beta Update
Facebook Lite fans who are enrolled in the beta program of the lightweight app should be pleased to find out that a new update is coming their way. The update sports the 184.108.40.206.117 beta version number and it is rolling out via OTA (over the air) channels with improvements for reliability and speed.
