Facebook has just rolled out an update for the lighter version of the social networking app on the android platforms. This update bumps the app to version 26.0.0.3.133 in the play store.

Facebook Lite was introduced because of certain issues regarding the compatibility and performance of the full-fledged Facebook app in low-end devices. It is a simple, reliable and lightweight app which works smoothly on most of the Android devices.

Even though it’s a lite variant, you can pretty much do everything like liking, commenting, sharing, and uploading, etc. The USP of this app is its smooth functioning even on a 2G network. Another feather in the cap is low RAM and storage usage on a smartphone.
