I just downloaded the new Facebook Lite application for my Android phone. Even though the app in the Play Store says it's restricted in the U.S. I downloaded a standalone version here:
Once installed on my phone I used the App Info screen to turn on the privacy guard so it cannot access my contacts.
I really like how streamlined the functionality is on the Facebook Lite application as well as having messages integrated into one single app. Previously I had been using the mobile version of facebook.com but I now I'm going to switch to this app.
