Facebook Launches Facebook Zero: A Light Weight Mobile Site

Facebook has released scant details about a new stripped down version of Facebook for mobile devices to save precious carrier bandwidth. The site is being dubbed as Facebook Zero, and can be accessed at zero.facebook.com.

A visit to Facebook Zero from a mobile handset, flashes a message that your carrier does not support the service as yet. In essence the site is a lite weight version of m.facebook.com that only offers text. Techcrunch was able to grab an image of the presentation by Chamath Palihapitiya (posted above).
