Facebook Lite

Facebook has released a stripped-down version of the popular social networking site which makes it faster and easier to load for those with slow Internet connections, older OS, and the like. Facebook Lite does away with all the apps, games, and add-ons the regular network has. You can still check your messages, Friend Requests, and perform other, core operations, but you have to logon to the regular site to access any of the third-party applications.

Lite was originally created to cater to countries outside the U.S., where Internet connections are slower. However, so many U.S.-based netizens preferred t to the regular version that Facebook decided to release it to America first. It is now working to translate the Lite version into other languages so it can be launched worldwide.
