The new Android app is called Facebook Lite. It’s available in Asia, and will soon be available in Latin America, Africa and Europe. It’s still the same Facebook that users know and love, but it uses less data to do it.

Facebook wants to make sure that just because you have a crummy phone doesn’t mean that you can’t find out what your friends are doing.

The social networking giant might also have a new present for busy page managers.

“Saved Replies” allows managers to respond to common inquiries and complaints with canned messages. Prior to this feature, users had to save such messages in a Word document and then copy and paste it. No more.

Managers can create a reply, save it for use later and then search through a list of previous replies.
