Facebook has just released a low resource version of their immensely popular app onto the Play Store aptly named Facebook Lite. Staying connected and being able to like your friends statuses 24/7 comes at a price with the app historically being a resource hog. With their recent updates the app has gotten better but for those with low end phones this is going to be a much better alternate.
Facebook Lite comes in at less than 1 MB and is designed for 2G networks and areas with limited connectivity. Facebook Lite is a great step forward in the emerging markets sector where keeping a stable connection can be an issue or if your phone just cant handle high resource apps.
Facebook has not made the app available worldwide but you can check to see if your country made the cut by using the widget below.
