Forget the days you sideload the Facebook Lite apk file for it to work here in the country — it’s now officially available here along with another set of new countries in Asia and Europe this month, and has been good to download in the Google Play Store since yesterday.
For those who are not familiar with Facebook Lite, it’s an Android application that replaces your facebook app. It’s said to consume less storage and RAM at a less than 1 MB app size, and is said to be designed with 2G Networks, effectively reducing mobile data consumption. If you hate the new messenger app, this can also be a suitable replacement for minimal conversations on the social networking site. Some omissions from the full-packed Facebook app include video playback and @-tagging in comments and posts.
You may download the Facebook Lite app here, or search it at the Google Play Store.
