Social networking giant, “facebook” launched a lighter version of their main website. As it reads on the website, “The fastest way to keep in touch” facebook lite is surely fast. However, to make it fast, facebook has blocked certain functionality like the groups, chat and notes. So far this lite version is only available to the users of United States of America and India.
The purpose of this lighter version is to avail facebook to those net surfers who are using slow Internet connection. This is quite understandable for the Indian audience, who for a magnitude of reasons face low Internet connection speeds over broadband and other high profile evdo connections. Also, another thing to note here is that, not all members wants the other functions of facebook, most of the members just wants to stay connected to their friends and family, which is something that will be quickly possible with this lighter mode of facebook.
All the basic facilities, like your details, pictures, friends and video etc. facilities are intact on the facebook lite. If you are new to facebook, the limited functionality lite version is easy to work with and get the feel of facebook. That way you as a new user won’t have to get lost in the cluttered full version. Since this version removed the third party apps, it’s already free from a ton of useless, unwanted stuff straight away.
All this is mainly done to compete with twitter, since the real time updates and simplicity have taken twitter to such a huge success, so facebook also wants to try out the same thing now.
