Not only you think it, now it is true, and it has been proven, Facebook is guilty of slower mobiles. Tests carried out with a benchmark determine that other apps on our mobile that have nothing to do with Facebook take more seconds to run with Facebook installed than when Facebook is not installed. Now, what can be done in this situation?
Uninstall it and forget about Facebook on your mobile
One option is to forget about Facebook on your mobile. You can continue using it on your computer, you can continue using it on your tablet, but you will not carry it on your mobile. After all, the app does not work perfectly well on the mobile, and if your mobile goes bad, it would be better to do without the app, right? It is an option that you have.
Install Facebook Lite
But there is no need to do without Facebook either. After all, they have launched an app called Facebook Lite, which has been available for some months in Spain, and which is basically a simplified version of the mobile app. It works very well on mobiles with basic range technical characteristics. Of course, on high-end mobiles it works well too. The Facebook Lite app has almost all the functions that the Facebook app has. And it has an advantage, you can use Facebook chat without having to also install Facebook Messenger. And, to top it all, it is not possible to use the chat from the Facebook app. In my opinion, Facebook Lite is even a better option than Facebook. Of course, the styles will be much worse, the app will be much simpler, but the mobile will go faster and you will save data on your mobile connectivity rate.
If you have an entry-level mobile, this is especially useful for you. But it is that even if you have a high-end mobile, the Facebook app will also result in your mobile being slower, so it is an option that you should consider. If you have a high-end mobile, after all, you want its operation to be perfect, right?
