A new “Lite” version of Facebook which was designed for developing countries is becoming popular with some existing Facebook users. The version features core Facebook services without any of the third party apps. Lite.facebook.com is perfect for Facebook users looking to escape automated messages from users of games and polls. You might say it provides a more Twitter-like experience especially when paired with a new feature that allows users to tag friends in status updates.
