Facebook Lite Goes Dark

Recommended Videos

Facebook Lite, Facebook’s attempt at a more minimalist interface, will henceforth no longer be supported. That means that if you’ve been using the site, you’ll now be directed over to the main Facebook page. Or Facebook Classic if you will.

Facebook created the Lite site in mid-2009 to be stripped-down and clutter-free, something a number of users had been clamoring for since the original STOP CHANGING FACEBOOK!!1! group. As such, it allowed users to send messages, write on friends’ walls, and share photos and videos, but excluded the more the 500,000 apps that third-party developers created for the social networking site.

Facebook gave no concrete reason for the shutdown. On their fan page is written:

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.

No word yet on if Lite users will now be offered the coveted “Unlike” button.
