Facebook Chat IM

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff May 6, 2012

You won't find any revolutionary features with Facebook Chat IM, a free instant messaging program, but it does give you a way to easily interface with your Facebook friends.

The free instant messaging tool presents an interface that anyone who has used an IM program will understand. Even those with no experience using an instant messenger will find the simple, clean interface easy to follow. There's a field for your message, a Send button -- all you need to instantly keep up with what your Facebook pals are doing. And you'll find all the staples of instant messaging, including emoticons, status updates, sound alerts, but you can also manage your Facebook privacy settings with the app.

One minor issue we found during the test is that the application installed a desktop icon without permission, but otherwise it works well as an IM program. Facebook users will like the integration with the popular social media site.
