Facebook Launches Lite Mobile Application For Nigeria & Countries With 2G Connections

Jan 26, 2015 – Facebook Launches Lite Cell Phone Application Version For Nigeria & Countries With 2G, Poor Internet Connections

Today, Facebook said it is testing a new version of mobile app for cell phone users with poor internet network strength in emerging markets like South Africa, Nigeria and others.

A spokesman told AFP in an email that the “Facebook Lite” Android app is designed “for people on 2G (second-generation) connections or in areas of limited Internet accessibility.”

The move expands Facebook’s efforts to grow the world’s biggest social network, which already has more than a billion users.

Most of Facebook’s growth is coming from emerging markets, but many people lack the phones or computers needed for the full-featured app.

The “lite” version can allow users with low-cost Android handsets to quickly load Facebook feeds and photos.

According to TechCrunch, the app was launched in South Africa, Nepal, Bangladesh, Nigeria, Sri Lanka, sudan, Vietname and Zimbabwe over the weekend.

Facebook has also launched a project tagged Internet.org to help bring strong signals to areas with poor internet connections.

I think Nigeria should be removed from that list because many internet users are currently on a 4G internet connection… Naija no dey for this level again joor.

    I like berg. He knows how to rise quickly & how to fall speedly. Since he has more boys on his smedia than men, students than workers, sellers than buyers…then his income would be smaller & expenditures.It would cost him more to get one more, more efforts little results then everything makes from it goes back into it.
