How to Switch Back to Facebook From Facebook Lite? – However, as we all know, Facebook knows a lot of information about you, and the social network’s mobile app is one of the ways the company collects your data. Is the Facebook Lite app any better?
In this article, we’ll explain what Facebook Lite is and help you decide whether it can replace the standard Facebook app
It took me a while to get to the root of the problem, as I am not facing this problem and also none of the friends around me.
How to Switch Back to Facebook From Facebook Lite?
Here are a few possible solutions that may help:
- Change the URL from http://lite.facebook.com/ to www.facebook.com/
- Click on settings tab, select “Friendships” option. You will get a page as the one shown below. Click on “main site “, that will redirect you to the older version.
- On most of the occasions Facebook lite is supported only in English, so a change in the language may do the trick. To change the language, click on settings tabs and this time select the “Language” option. This will show you a page to select a language. Select a new language. I would suggest English (Pirate) and click on “Set Language”. Voila, we are back to good old Facebook. Go to settings again and switch back to the previous language.

- Another way is to flush the DNS cache of your system

Facebook vs. Facebook Lite: Which Should You Use?
While Facebook isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, Facebook Lite might be more appealing. Especially if you own an older phone or need to save data where possible.
However, if you don’t have an older phone and don’t need to conserve data, you’ll probably benefit more from the standard Facebook app. The only issue being the extra permissions needed to use it.
Although Facebook Messenger provides an easy way to communicate with your friends, you might want to keep your information off of Facebook. Fortunately, these Facebook Messenger alternatives are perfect if you don’t want to use Facebook.
I greatly believe these solutions will help you out and get you back to Facebook
