Tips to use Facebook social networking when in a poor internet connection

2: Seeker Bronze

In the process of working or playing, we will have plenty of time to go to distant places, suffering from poor network connectivity. At that time updating information will be very difficult, even impossible, especially those who like Facebook like me. So I want to discuss with you the application can overcome the above difficulties.

Priority is the application for Android

Hi,

 

Personally if I can I'll use Wifi if available in the situation of fringe connection or wait until I'm in a better coverage area. 

 

App's in my experience wouldn't be able to improve fringe coverage or Not Spots.

@oliverpipe Have you seen Facebook Lite? It claims to work in all network conditions so might be useful for you with a poor internet connection.

Download it on the Play Store at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.facebook.lite&hl=en_GB

Yes, I also learned about Facebook Lite for Android, it's effective. And I see the website is the version of Facebook Lite for other platforms such as iOS, PC, Windows phone, you refer http://facebooklite.playstoredownloadappfree.net/

I used to use a Facebook App called 'Paper' on my previous phone which was an iPhone. 

 

It was so much user friendly than the current Facebook App but it was only available to people in the states so I had to change region in my iTunes to USA to get it.   Smiley Wink

 

Unfortunatley the Paper App was withdrawn. 

 

I think i may try out Facebook lite. Thanks @Nabs I didn't know it existed. Smiley Happy

That's odd! I've used it before so assumed it was from the play store... maybe i side loaded.

Try downloading the APK instead http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/facebook-2/lite/ :smileyhappy:

Sideloading and apk fill me with dread.  Smiley Sad
