Facebook Lite is dead

Facebook has shut down the lightweight edition of their service they called Facebook Lite.

The company said in a message on their profile page on the network:

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 Lite was designed to provide a simpler lightweight front-end to the service which has become rather complicated over the years.

It was also an excellent front-end for users who did not have a fast internet connection. But it also pretty much removed all the cool features and ads from the Facebook user interface.

It is a disappointing step taken by the company though not many users would be annoyed by it.
