Facebook Lite closes its doors

Comments (1)

facebook lite thumb.jpgFacebook Lite has been shut down by Facebook, after going live just recently in September of last year.

The service was intended to offer a low-bandwidth version of the social network. It stripped Facebook back to its basics (status updates, wall posts and photo uploads) and removed some of the more data-intensive functions such as apps.

"We're no longer supporting it, but learned a lot from the test of a slimmed-down site," read a post on the Lite Facebook fan page.

So why close the service? Well it's likely that demand just wasn't that great; with myriad bandwidth saving apps and Facebook Mobile all available, as well as the growing speeds of internet connections worldwide, the majority of Facebook users just simply prefer the full-fat flavour.

That said though, the Facebook Lite fan page has a hefty 69,198 fans, so maybe a few tears will be shed after all.
