Facebook Lite Hits 200 Million Users!
Facebook Lite is not so light with the number of users they have. Last Wednesday, the social media giant announced that more than 200 million users are now using the Lite version of its App every month, this is a 100 percent increase from its status last month. Facebook Lite was just launched last June 2015, and by connecting people in the low-bandwidth world, they have increased their revenue by 52%.
In order to make the most out of this growth, Facebook is planning to further the app's availability. They are going to include countries like South Korea, Italy, the UAE, and Israel. Facebook hopes that plenty of people with inexpensive phones or limited internet access can enjoy the benefits of connectivity. They are also adding more features to Facebook so users can now like, share, and comment on posts.
With their increasing number of users, Facebook Lite is one of the reasons why they were able to boost their business across the globe. By making it enjoyable for users to sign up and spend more time on their app, they are starting to make serious amounts of money in places other apps don’t. And in this era where a lot of companies are waiting for networks to increase bandwidth, Facebook turned their app into a Lite version and made it profitable.
