Facebook has launched a "mini" version of the Instagram app in 170 countries, allowing people with a poor Internet connection to use the application to share photos and videos.
The version of "Instagram Lite" will be available for phones running the Android operating system and require a lower bandwidth than the traditional version.
The mini version needs only two megabytes compared to the 30 megabytes of the original app and can run even on slower second generation networks, which allows customers in parts of India, Africa, Asia and Latin America, where the Internet infrastructure is weak, to use the service.
