Facebook too slow? try Facebook Lite, the low-fat facebook

This lite version is now now longer available, Facebook decided to remove it.

That’s right, Facebook Lite, a stripped-down version of Facebook that shrinks Facebook down into its core features, making for a much smoother facebook experience.

This new version of the site is much more simple and cleaner in appearance and appears to be a better site for Facebook newbies or for anyone who finds the current site “too much” or noisy. It also does away with the old-school Facebook apps, which is just as well for the newest Facebook-connected services. (although farmtown/farmville addicts will still have to use full-fat facebook to harvest and plow!)

The major visual change in Facebook Lite, compared to the full-fat Facebook “Classic,” is simply that most of the the navigation and info page that was on the left of the page is now gone. The user is not distracted by the mostly superfluous details that resided there. The input box is also gone, replaced by buttons (Write, Post Photos, Post Video) that pop down the actual input forms only when needed.

The facebook chat feature is in there too, it’s not embedded in the facebook page but as a separate “pop-up” window instead.

Anyway enough from me, check it out for yourself… lite.facebook.com
