Facebook says it brought the Lite version to more developed countries as users can still have lower connectivity.

The pared-down version of Facebook is now available in 100 countries, and was created in 2015 with the intention of serving regions that have slower internet and less access to data.

Beginning Friday, Facebook Lite will be available for downloads in all appropriate markets.

Facebook Lite still contains many great features including the ability to Post all your status updates - including Emoji and photos, as well as connect with and find friends and family.

A lot of other Facebook feature have been stripped out of the app to make the app run smoother on low-powered devices, resulting in less data usage.

Facebook Lite is also rolling out to other countries that were originally snubbed, including the United Kingdom, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, Ireland, France, and Germany. This is significantly less when compared to the few hundred MB that the regular Facebook app requires. It has designed versions of its website known as Facebook Zero and Facebook Lite over the past decade.

Facebook has been constantly working to make a better contribution to the society.

Specifically created for emerging markets, Facebook Lite was released in the Google Play Store six months after it was introduced.
