Facebook Stops Lite Service Version

Social networking service of Facebook "Lite" service version stopped on Tuesday, which was as seen a potential challenge to the microblogging site Twitter.

Facebook based in California posted in their website statement as "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 Lite version of Facebook was a simplified version of social networking website that enabled people to make comments, accept Friend requests, write on people's Walls, and look at photos and Status updates.

Its service was launched about eight (9) months ago in an attempt to cater to new users "looking to start off with a more simple experience."

Facebook Lite version is similar style of the real-time interplay Twitter that was devoted to bring the user fresh comments and updates from friends.

A rapid growth of Twitter since its lunch on March 2006 that allows users to post thoughts in under 140-characters known as "tweets."

According the co-founder of the Twitter, the service has over 105 million registered users and is adding 300,000 new accounts every day.
