Facebook Lite No More

Facebook is officially shutting down Facebook Lite. The stripped-down version of Facebook which was launched last September featured a minimalist interface.

It was designed for users with slower connections. Users could comment, accept friend requests, look at photos, update statuses, and write on friend’s walls.

“Thanks to everyone who tried out Facebook Lite,” Facebook posted in a status update to the Facebook Lite Web page on Monday. “We’re no longer supporting it, but learned a lot from the test of a slimmed-down site. If you used Lite, you’ll now be taken to the main Facebook.com site.”

Facebook users responded somewhat negatively. Saying that the regular Facebook page is too cluttered and time-consuming to manage. Many others say that Facebook Lite has given them a chance to truly connect without being distracted by apps and quizzes.
