Facebook @Desktop

Check your Facebook stream using this utility.

Facebook users struggling to keep up with their accounts will like this free app that helps with checking messages, invites, friends' requests, pokes, and notices on the social media site. Facebook @Desktop from Olcinium is a dot NET app that provides access to this information directly on your desktop. With the new app, there is now no need to log in to the account itself to be instantly updated.

The free software, once installed, will place an icon in the task bar. Once a message is posted to your Facebook account, it will be relayed to your desktop as an alert. The application also permits the setting to be configured as to which types of notifications are to be received and how often the Facebook account is accessed for updates. Facebook @Desktop allows users to post messages directly to their wall without signing in, and the integrated Web browser will bring them to the Facebook Web site with a single click.

Facebook @Desktop is another tool that brings additional flexibility to how people use Facebook. There were no issues found with the installation and uninstallation of the software during the review.
