Use Facebook Mobile or Facebook Lite for less annoying experiences

Posted by

Facebook Mobile and Facebook Lite app are two other ways to use Facebook on your smartphone apart from the regular Facebook app that you know. They are also less annoying, among other benefits.

Facebook Mobile

You can access Facebook from your mobile phone’s web browser. This version is called Facebook Mobile. What are the benefits of using the lite app? For one, it is much less annoying. The pesky notifications that the regular app throws at you do not exist.

Also, there is much less battery drain. As you may already know, the regular Facebook app is a battery hog.

Lastly, using the Facebook Mobile app frees up storage space on your phone.

To use Facebook Mobile, open your phone’s web browser and type in

Facebook Lite

As the name implies, Facebook Lite is a much smaller, storage-friendly, battery-friendly version of the regular Facebook app.

Facebook Lite is 1.3 MB in size, compared to the regular Facebook app weighs 72 MB. In addition, the Lite app works better under slow and epileptic network conditions.

You can get Facebook Lite from the Play Store. Download it HERE.

Use Mobile Or Lite Versions Of Your Favourite Apps

It isn’t only Facebook that has alternative channels. Quite a number of your favourite Android apps probably do too. For example, Twitter has Twitter Mobile and Twitter Lite as well just the way Facebook has Facebook Mobile and Facebook Lite. Both Facebook Messenger and YouTube have lite versions of their apps as well.

The benefits are the same: you save space on your device, you get better battery life, and in some situations, you free yourself from constant notifications. Chances are that you will also use Facebook less, which is great if you think you already spend too much time on the app.

  1. I’ve been using Facebook lite for a while now and I’m loving it. One feature I enjoy is the mark all as read in notifications. Using the regular app, you will have to view all notifications one by one otherwise it’ll still be highlighted.

  2. Been using Facebook lite for more than 2 years now… It’s a perfect balance.. don’t miss the bigger app… Plus I rather prefer I can read messages, don’t need messenger to do that with the lite app
