There are variety of Facebook apps for smartphones and tablets, and now we’re getting the first Windows-based Facebook Messenger that allows people to stay in touch with their friends without opening Facebook in their browser.
As you know, there are many applications such as Digsby, Trillian, Skype, or MSN Live that have Facebook support, but they only support the basic features, therefore Facebook has decided to release its own Facebook Messenger. Facebook Messenger supports chat, but it also includes notifications, new friend requests, and even a feed that allows you to stay up to date with your friend’s activity. In addition, there’s a button that locks Facebook Messenger on the right side of your screen so you can access Facebook, and stay up to date with your Friend’s updates at all times.
Facebook Messenger has leaked, and it is available for download, so you can try it free of charge. As for the compatibility, this application is currently compatible only with Windows 7 and Windows Vista, so keep that in mind.
