Facebook is testing an efficient version of Facebook which is called Facebook lite. According to company’s plan Facebook lite will be launched for the countries where broadband is limited.
Facebook spokesperson said about Facebook lite that:
“We are currently testing a simplified alternative to Facebook.com that loads a specific set of features quickly and efficiently. Similar to the Facebook experience you get on your mobile phones, Facebook Lite is a fast-loading, simplified version of Facebook that enables people to make comments, accept friend requests, write on people’s walls, and look at photos and status updates. We are currently testing Facebook Lite in countries where we are seeing lots of new users coming to Facebook for the first time and are looking to start off with a more simple experience.”
Right now, Facebook has 250 million active users, and more than 75% users are from the Western countries. So by presenting Facebook lite company means to grow in countries which have not high speed internet connections and this new efficient version of Facebook will also help to expand mobile phone firm into those markets.
