About the FB Lite app
FB lite is a great app that lets you connect with your loved ones by having a few hardware and software resources. This means it can be installed with 1GB of RAM required less than 30MB space, and can be run with even 2G network connectivity.
I have compared both FB Lite and FB apps, which you might be interested in. It has almost all the features we have in the regular FB app but the aim of designing it is to be used while having a slow network speed even 2G.
I am using it for years and believe it is better than the regular one. You will love it if you still don’t have one. The lite app is available on the Android Play Store and the iOS App Store for download. Get it and enjoy it.
