Two years ago, Facebook announced a new application that incorporated key features, but came in a slimmer figure. Facebook Lite was initially launched in India and the Philippines, but the app made its way to multiple other countries.
Facebook Lite has had quite the evolution over the past two years and it now passed the 200 million users mark, according to Mark Zuckerberg. The application reached 100 million users in March 2016 and it seems that it doubled its size in less than a year.
Chief Operating Officer at Facebook, Sheryl Sandberg stated that Facebook Lite is helping businesses grow and reach customers who don’t benefit from speedy Internet connections. Facebook Lite has offered Facebook the means to reach more people and connect them through the social network.
