Out goes Facebook lite

Wednesday, 21st April 2010 10:48pm
Facebook has announced that it is shutting down Facebook Lite after a trial period of just over seven months.

Facebook Lite was a stripped down version of the main site which was targetted at people with slow Internet connections as they could easily access this site faster.

I only logged into the lite version just once to have a feel of it and I never got to log in again.

I am not a fan of lite sites because I think if its possible its better to have a site which gives you the option to turn off some features if you don't want them.

Turning off features gives you the power to customise the site to what you exactly need and all the other things that distract you and you don't need them turn them off.

i agree with you on that. though facebook doesnt give you the option to turn off a lot of the features many users find annoying, ive found a great web browser script that gives the user just those options, it works really well at decluttering and easing the information overload of the site. the script is called fluff busting purity, you can get it here.

Thanks Marco for the comment and the link to fluff busting purity.
