Facebook Lite Hits 200 Million Users

Facebook Lite has reached 200 million users. The stripped-down app available to internet users in low-bandwidth areas of the world, has doubled its users in less than a year, after it hit the 100 million user milestone in March 2016. Facebook has enjoyed a leap in revenue on the app as well, after seeing a 28% jump during 2016, with its 'Rest of World' market seeing a 52% profit increase in the same period. The app recently expanded into Israel, Italy, and the United Arab Emirates as well as other countries, opening it up for even more success. It has also added a feature that allows businesses to manage their own pages specifically for the Lite version of Facebook's mobile app.
