Calif. – Facebook has
discontinued its Facebook Lite service, which was launched last summer as a less
fully-featured and ad-laden version of the site and marketed towards new users
in foreign countries. "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," the company wrote. Facebook did not provide a reason for discontinuing the service.
