Facebook Lite help and info

  • What is Facebook Lite for Android?

    Facebook Lite for Android was created by the markers of Facebook. If you are in an area that does not have much of an internet signal, or you are using pay-as-you-go internet, Facebook Lite will cost less to use because it won’t use as much data as the original Facebook app. Plus, the Facebook Lite app only uses 4.5MB of space on your phone, which is less that the original, since the original uses 162MB of space on your Android device.

  • Does Facebook Lite for Android save your battery power?

    It will save battery power on your Android device, as it requires less power than the standard Facebook app. However, tests by the Facebook development team have shown that the Lite app runs more slowly than the original app.

  • Is the Facebook Lite for Android app safe?

    The app files are safe so long as you are downloading original files. These are the files you also find in the Google Play Store app. We check all the files before uploading to make sure everything is undamaged, secure and safe.

  • How do I install Facebook Lite for Android to my Android devices?

    Once you have downloaded the file to your smartphone, it will automatically be launched as soon it is opened. There are some occasions where you will need to reject the permissions to download it. The instructions are available to download and are easy to follow on the screen.

  • Does the Lite version come with all the photo functions and features?

    Facebook Lite app is the same as the standard Facebook app in terms of its photo functions and features, it is just not as smooth or sophisticated looking. It will organize and sort all of the photos you have shared, and gives you full control over your photos sharing functions and settings. In the privacy settings, you will be able to choose who sees your pictures and who will not.

  • Why my Facebook Lite for Android can't start/crash?

    If you have problems with the app, Facebook advises that you uninstall and reinstall the Facebook Messenger or Facebook Lite app. If it does not work after you have tried this, then contact the support team for more help.

  • Is this version the same as the original Facebook app?

    The Facebook Lite for Android app has most of the features that the full Facebook app has, but the Lite has a very different design. The programmers built a brand-new app, they didn't strip features off the full version, they started from nothing and included all the Facebook features they could fit into it.

  • Are the text buttons bigger with Facebook Lite for Android?

    Facebook Lite is great for phones with lower resolution displays because the text and buttons are bigger on the Facebook Lite version. In the Lite version’s notification section, you can see people's profile image pop up to declare if someone commented or liked your post or photo, but it is a smaller and lower resolution image when compared with the full Facebook app.

  • What are the biggest differences between the Android Facebook app and this Facebook Lite app?

    The difference between Facebook Lite and Facebook is how much space the original Facebook takes up, how much data it takes to run the app. Plus, the Lite version doesn't require a high speed Internet connection to run at full capacity. Both apps will allow you to access your Facebook account, but the Lite app makes it so that you do not need to download the Messenger app. The Lite version allows you to see the messages and send/receive without using Facebook Messenger. Facebook Lite also saves your battery when compared to the full version, but won’t be able to play videos, and the Lite version loads more slowly.

  • Does this Lite version still have a Facebook newsfeed?

    Facebook Lite has the same newfeed that the full app has. It also has Facebook events to keep you up date about whatever liberal ideas that Facebook wants you to swallow. You can still follow your favourite bands, TV Shows, and more using Facebook Lite.
