Facebook Lite closes - everyone back to Farmville!
Deathwatch! Facebook Lite has been closed down after only seven glorious months as a stripped-down alternative to the bewilderingly buggy main version of the social networking sensation. Users of Lite now find themselves diverted back to the big, shonky original Facebook. Bugger.
Designed for people with slow internet connections but in many ways a pale imitation of Twitter, Facebook Lite only allowed users to do simple stuff like write on their wall, post photos and videos, view events and browse other people's profiles.
If you opted for the Facebook Lite experience, it meant missing out on vital updates from your friends about how their imaginary farms were doing or the latest hits made by their imaginary mafia, not to mention their daily horoscope readings that you almost certainly didn’t give a shit about.
In truth though, Facebook Lite probably wasn’t cutting the mustard from a fiscal point of view and so it’s gone the way of New Coke and Primark’s paedokinis – into the big burning bin of history.
