There are already more than 500 million Facebook users in the world (imagine that!) and I’m pretty sure that this figure will still go high. Why am I “pretty sure”? Because once you use Facebook, you’ll instantly get hooked to it especially if you see your old friends and classmates have their accounts too! That’s why a lot of people, including me, can’t consider a day complete without opening their Facebook account and checking out what are the latest happenings. For this reason, an app has been developed to help you connect to your social media life right upon opening your computer – say hello to Facebook Desktop.
Facebook Desktop is an Adobe Air based application that lets you get all the latest updates on your Facebook account without opening a web browser. You’ll get instant notifications right on your desktop so you’ll not miss anything!
To use Facebook Desktop, first you must have Adobe Air installed on your computer. Then download and install Facebook Desktop.
* Since Adobe Air can be installed in any OS, you can use Facebook Desktop in any OS too!
Once installed, launch Facebook Desktop. Enter your Facebook credentials then click Login.
Once you’ve successfully logged in, you’ll see a welcome note by Facebook Desktop above the notification area. From here, you’ll also receive all the notifications so even if you’re doing anything, like for example, while I’m writing this post, the notifications just keep on popping up. When you click the notifications, your web browser will open and re-direct you to the post.
You can also control which notifications would you like to appear.
With Facebook Desktop, you can still do your regular activities while keeping up with the latest happenings on your Facebook account.
