What is Facebook Lite and how does it work? As its name suggests, this is a lighter version of the popular social network's mobile application. The software takes up less space on your mobile device and uses much less data than its more full-bodied parent app, meaning pages load quickly and you can worry less about going over your monthly data limit. In this article, we discuss some of the app’s key features, as well as some additional information.

Key Features

Here are some of the Facebook Lite app’s main features:

  • Connect: Undoubtedly the most important feature, Facebook Lite allows you to connect with friends and family, as well as to stay up to date with them.
  • Facebook Marketplace: buy and sell unique items locally on Facebook Marketplace.
  • Save Space: The only difference with the classic app is that Facebook Lite is smaller and is designed to be used in 2G conditions.
  • Messenger: Another great advantage of Facebook Lite is that it allows you to access Messenger without needing to download the separate application.

How Does Facebook Lite Work?

The normal 'parent' app weighs approximately 57MB but Facebook Lite app comes in at a mere 1.59MB, it is also designed to use less RAM and CPU power and so it works well on cheaper and less powerful phones. Facebook Lite doesn't download pictures in High Definition resolution or autoplay videos (perfect for saving data on a more limited plan) and the interface is more stripped down than the original with bigger, chunkier buttons and a more basic layout. Having said all that, it does exactly what it's supposed to, and for a fraction of the size-try it out!

The Facebook Lite download is available through the green button at the top of the page.

Is Facebook Lite Safe?

Facebook’s Privacy policy has been subject to controversy, thus we recommend reading it before installing the app. If your account has been hacked, you can recover it, although it may take some time.

Is Facebook Lite Free?

You can download and use this app for free.

System Requirements
