Facebook revealed another Android application for its social networking platform on Thursday that uses less information and runs quicker in regions with slower internet connections.


The application, called Facebook Lite, is accessible in nations across Asia and will soon advance to parts of Latin America, Africa and Europe. In a large portion of those nations, individuals still utilize 2G systems, which are much slower and have less power than the 4G systems in numerous created countries.

The application utilizes under one-half of a megabyte of data to limit data usage and rates for those in developing markets. While despite everything it backings Facebook’s News Feed, notices, warnings and photographs, it does not support videos and advanced location services.

Facebook Lite is a piece of the world’s biggest social networking system’s venture into developing markets. Prior this year, Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg reported Internet.org, a stage created with six innovation accomplices to associate 4.5 billion individuals with no present access to the Internet.
