Facebook Lite DiscontinuedIf you were one of those regular users of the light, stripped and javascript less (to an extent) version of Facebook aka Facebook Lite, then this one is really a sad news for you. Facebook Lite has now been discontinued and http://lite.facebook.com is now being redirected to the main page of Facebook. This announcement was made via a wall post on the Facebook fan page. [Facebook Lite fan page].

The update reads:

Thanks to everyone who tried out Facebook Lite. We're no longer supporting it, but learned a lot from the test of a slimmed-down site. If you used Lite, you'll now be taken to the main Facebook.com site.

I used to have a small notification bar atop all the pages on Facebook.com which remined me of the Facebook Lite but a sudden disappearance of the bar made me think if the service has been discontinued which actually turned out to be true! Facebook Lite was basically meant for dial-up users and since it has been discontinued now, users on slow internet connections have to revert back to the Facebook.com version of the social network. However, such users may also try the m.facebook.com mobile site of Facebook on browsers. There is another light version of Facebook called the Facebook Zero, but this version is available strictly from Mobile devices.
