The main objective of Facebook behind launching this android app in its second biggest market i.e. India was that the most of the users run 2G networks (around 80 % as per the product manager for Facebook Lite) and normal full Facebook app consumes hundreds of MBs in your mobile phone’s memory. Obviously, for a user who is using 2G network to run Facebook App, it becomes quite difficult to run such a large app. Hence, to deal with such conditions Facebook has come up with Facebook Lite Android App that has largely reduced the app size to 435k, even less than 1 MB.
Along with its reduced app size, the new Facebook Lite Android app has also endowed with some unique and exciting features in it. So, let us throw some light on the features that we are going to get via Facebook Lite app.
