Facebook Lite allows me to access my timeline and post and look at photos without using tons of space on my device."

      "My Moto G3 was very slow and I understood some apps were consuming too many resources. I tried to uninstall Facebook and replace it with an alternative app. Instead of trying any third-party app, I tried the Lite version and I can say it worked. My Android is smoother by far."

      "I LOVE Facebook Lite! It breathed new life into my old phone because now I can use it for facebook when it was really useless before. I actually prefer the lite version of facebook to the standard app. Less crap everywhere. Would recommend this to anybody."

It's lightweight and much faster, plus it can be locked so someone that uses your phone can't post for you."

      "Annoyed that Facebook wants you to have two apps just so you can access your profile? Me too! This app is the perfect combination of both so that I can free up more space on my phone and not have to switch back and forth all the time."

      "Friendly is marketed specifically as an alternative app to Facebook and Messenger, and claims to allow users to interact with Facebook content without actually using Facebook. It seems like a great alternative."
