Editors' Review

by   / November 28, 2011

Facebook Pro is a desktop client for accessing Facebook outside of a web browser. If there's one thing we hate, it's software that doesn't do anything that you can't already do with existing programs on your computer. Why clutter up your hard drive with software you don't need? Unfortunately, Facebook Pro is exactly that: software you don't need. The program is essentially just a Web browser that displays Facebook and a couple of other links. We didn't see the point, and we doubt you will, either.

We installed Facebook Pro and it took us to the Facebook log-in page. We logged into our Facebook account and yes, there were our news feed, our profile, and our list of chat contacts; it looked exactly like the Facebook that we see every day in our Web browser. A button at the top of the interface labeled Facebook Home returned us to our news feed from other pages, something we could achieve just as easily by clicking the big Facebook button in the upper-left corner of Facebook itself. We clicked the Facebook Pro X-tras button, figuring that this was where the cool stuff would be, but we were wrong. This contained links to the Facebook Pages home page, the Facebook blog, and books on Amazon about Facebook, things we could have easily accessed using our regular Web browser. The publisher's description promised that Facebook Pro could display in Lite and Mobile modes, which could have been useful, but we couldn't find any way to do that. There's no Help file, either, but that's not surprising, as there's not much you could conceivably need help with. Overall, we found Facebook Pro to be a waste of time, and we don't recommend it.

Facebook Pro installs and uninstalls without issues.
