Facebook Available in Windows Store

Facebook is now available in Windows Store. In addition to allowing users to read the status updates of friends and family, this update also includes support for managing Facebook Pages, uploading photos and pretty much every feature that Facebook’s website does. Facebook for Windows also supports the platform’s unique features too. The app’s Live Tile automatically alerts users to new pending notifications and users can also open other applications with Facebook open. Unfortunately the application can only shrink down to 50% of the screen. In contrast, many other applications can shrink down to as much as 25% of a user’s screen. It also appears that this first version doesn’t support the Share Charm like other social media applications on Windows. Users can post pictures and status updates to Facebook by using the Share Charm and routing them through the People app included with every Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 installation.
