Facebook is the largest social networking and Facebook mobile app is the platform from which most of Facebook users come online to check what their friends have shared. The native Facebook application is quite old and it has gone through radical changed over time. The original Facebook application contains all the basic features that are used by a user, like messaging, News Feed, Videos, Tags, Friends and whatever we can think of. This application used to perform poorly sometime ago but now it has been pretty much improved. The UI of Facebook app is neat and smooth.
The most common problem with the Facebook app is that it is very much data hungry. It takes a lot of speed and data to use the native Facebook application. With lower broadband connections, this application becomes really annoying. This is because of how much data it has to load. Moreover, to run FB app properly, lot of RAM is required. When it comes to high-end smartphones, it is not a problem at all. But for low-end smartphones, this application is way too heavy. It consumes a lot of RAM and processing capacity which makes it highly unsuitable for these kind of smartphones.
Low-end smartphone users have been looking for alternatives since long so that they can use Facebook on their smartphones without worrying about speed and lag. Many third-party developers have released lite versions of the original Facebook application which are aimed to reduce data usage along with RAM and processor usage. Some of these applications perform quite well. There are some users who just do not like the main application because they think it is filled with unnecessary features therefore they like to go with third-party apps.
Facebook has finally worked out a solution. It has started working on a lite version of FB app which is official. This application is not available for download yet. It is currently in the beta testing phase and it is tested in few areas at the moment. The purpose of this application would be aid those people who do not carry a super smartphone or those who cannot get access to high-speed internet. This application tackles both of these problems. The UI of Facebook Lite is simplified to make it more data friendly. Many features from the main application are ignored in Facebook Lite app.
