Facebook is one of the most popular social media platforms across the globe. With over a billion registered users, the official Facebook app is a data using, resource consuming and battery draining app that a lot of people avoid using.
If you’re looking for easier options of Facebook there are many for Android.
Here are new Facebook apps coming down the pipes with many features:
1. Faster for Facebook Lite
Price: Free / $2.99
Faster for Facebook Lite is a relatively new Facebook app using lighter and lesser resources. It includes Facebook and Facebook Messenger support, where you can view all kinds of content like video and GIFs, and you can change to classic Facebook mode if needed. Its dark mode and all-in-one experience are nice. You can have the premium version for $2.99 and that’s a perfectly reasonable price for it.
2. Facebook and Facebook Lite
Whenever Facebook releases a new feature, the official app will have it long before the third party Facebook apps. As Facebook’s official suite of apps is many but they’re also notoriously hard to use outside of the official app. Due to this, Facebook made Facebook Lite which is a super light, simple, and surprisingly good alternative to its larger, battery consuming sibling.
3. Friendly for Facebook
Price: Free / $1.99-$9.99
Friendly for Facebook is yet another newer Facebook apps. With a pretty nice set of features like theming, Facebook Messenger support, the ability to customize your news feed, you can also download videos from Facebook. You may also filter out things like keywords thus get rid of nonsense you don’t want to see. You get the pro version for $1.99 to unlock some of the features.
4. Simple for Facebook
Price: Free / $1.49
Simple for Facebook is quite easy to use including some decent features. This includes interacting with posts, uploading photos and videos, and all of the basic ones. It also supports Facebook Messenger with a small selection of themes. You will have ads using the free version and can shell out $1.49 to avoid ads and get the full version.
Phoenix is another Facebook alternative supported by Facebook Messenger. You get to perform all activities similar to Facebook here like voice calls and chat heads. In addition, you will also get a few extra functions not found in the Facebook app. It’s also entirely free with no ads so you get what you pay for.
SlimSocial is a relatively new Facebook app and simple to use. It’s intensely small-sized (100KB) and it’s open-source. You can customize it also if you want to. Although it’s a bit slow, it’s not that bad. We expect better features in the future due to its open-source properties.
