Facebook Messenger

Facebook just released its desktop client for Facebook Messenger. It's currently only available for Windows users, although the company confirmed that a Mac-friendly version is on its way, too. The app allows you to:

  • Chat and message with your friends on Facebook
  • See the latest updates from your friends in ticker
  • Get quick notifications about what's going on
I personally don't use Facebook Messenger for much at all (and I'm on a Mac), but this will no doubt be welcome to those who use the social network to stay in touch with their friends on a day-to-day basis. The tabbed chat boxes also looks particularly useful. Facebook Chat for Windows is available now for free.
