Microsoft has updated the Facebook app for Windows Phone 7 and Windows Phone 8 with support for phones with 256MB RAM, as well as performance enhancements and bug fixes for all devices.

Given that Facebook is used by more than 1 billion people worldwide each month — and mobile usage is growing fast — it is imperative for Microsoft to provide a native app for all customers. As of May 2012, just 1.6 percent of apps were incompatible with 256MB phones, but that included one-quarter of Xbox Live titles and some significant apps, such as Facebook.
