Reaching that many monthly active users less than nine months following its launch, fast-growing Facebook Lite now supports more than 50 languages and has been rolled out in more than 150 countries through Latin America, Asia, Africa and parts of Europe. Recently, Facebook also announced new features for Facebook Lite including support for video, multiple photo uploads, pinch-to-zoom for photos, emojis, and a whole lot more.

The Philippines joins Brazil, India, Indonesia, and Mexico as the Top 5 Nations using Facebook Lite.

Weighing less than 1MB (a little more than 800kb, to be exact), Facebook Lite was introduced in June 2015 to make it easier for people (especially in developing nations) to access Facebook on older smartphones and features or in areas with slower connections.

In many places, networks can be slow or unable to support all the functionality found in the full-version of Facebook for Android or iOS. Facebook Lite delivers a reliable FB experience even when bandwidth is at a minimum. Users can access Facebook Lite from the Google Play Store on their Android phones in countries where Facebook Lite has launched.

Users who are subscribed to a prepaid promo with fixed data allocation - like Smart Big Bytes 99 that comes with 200MB of data, good for one month - would also greatly benefit from using Facebook Lite.
