More than a few people have commented about the new Facebook Lite interface. I will simply add the impressions from a co-worker of mine who is blind.
I suggested it to her this morning as we were discussing social networking, and how difficult some of the navigation can be. I had a hunch that the Lite interface – being more streamlined and less AJAX-y – would make it easier for her to get to the information she wanted.
She says the Chat function is gone, but that’s not a huge loss for her since the main Chat interface doesn’t give her any information about who is or is not online. She says she will revert to the main page if she needs Chat, but is bookmarking the Lite Facebook for everyday use.
POSTSCRIPT: My coworker is a little disturbed to find out that her sighted friends have a way to hide YoVille, Mobsters 2 and Castle Age requests… and she doesn’t.
