Facebook Shuts Down Facebook Lite

Before some months, Facebook launched Facebook lite, a stripped-down version of its site meant to load faster and be more accessible in places without broadband connection. Many people thought this lite version would be Twitter killer.

It was specially created for people with slow Internet connections.

I was astonished to see such a status update from them. Facebook fan page status update says,

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.

Facebook shuts down Facebook lite

What’s the reason? Any clues?

Even I have no clue. People say it showed only limited advertising and it was disconnected from accessing features like Facebook fan pages and some applications.

If you used Facebook Lite before, you will now be taken to the main Facebook.com site.

So which version you were using before? 🙂
