    The Internet Is Making Lots Of Jokes At The News That Instagram Is Launching A "Lite" Version Of Its App

    "Does Instagram Lite have less calories than the other competitors?"

    Just in case you missed the news, today Instagram announced that it would be launching a new Android-only version of its app called Instagram Lite.

    Now, in case you're saying to yourself, What the hell does that mean? Instagram Lite is a version of the app that is being targeted at developing markets. The app itself uses less data and is missing some features, like shopping, Reels, and dark mode.

    Of course, the news that Instagram was launching another version of itself was met with some confusion.

    Below are some pretty good Twitter reactions of people hearing about Instagram Lite:

    1.

    “I see you’re using Instagram Lite. Is that cause you think you’re fat? Cause you’re not. You could totally be using the regular Instagram if you wanted to.”

    Mark Zuckerberg has claimed that although Instagram Lite is a lighter version of Instagram but it will steal the same amount of data from users. So no need to panic.
