The social network Facebook announced it has abandoned a lighter version of its site after running for just seven months. It is without much explanation that the networking giant announced on its fan page that the company had decided to no longer support this version of Facebook.

Facebook Lite was first tested in India and other countries.

Facebook, meanwhile, boasts more than 400 million users.
