Facebook Touch for Windows 8 is a new utility that lets you use Facebook on touchscreen devices that have a Windows 8 operating system. Keep in mind that this will not magically turn any device into a touchscreen device. You must have that capability already on your device before you can use it.
With millions of users all around the world, Facebook ranks as the top social networking site. This simple site lets you create an account and add friends to your account. You can then share images and videos with those friends and comment on the content they post. Facebook also lets you create status updates based on your opinions or thoughts and lets you check in at restaurants and other places you go. You can even like the pages created by your favorite brands and products to find out about contests, upcoming sales, and coupons.
Facebook Touch for Windows 8 is the newest version of the app. Though it only works with Windows 8 operating systems, those who used the Windows 7 version will find that this one is a little more responsive and acts faster than the previous edition. It lets you do everything you want to do on Facebook without using your keyboard.
The next time you want to post a status update, you can click on the box on your home screen. You can then use the keyboard on your screen to write down anything you want. The app also lets you post images, share videos, or comment on the posts of others without using a keyboard. You'll even have full access to the settings features that let you change who can view your posts and how your name appears on the site.
This Facebook app also comes with automatic updates. Each time that Facebook releases an update, the app will send out an alert. You can click on that alert to check out the update and download it to your computer. The main app and all updates install quickly. With an easy to use interface and a sleek design, it's no wonder why so many Windows 8 users add this app for playing around on Facebook. Facebook Touch for Windows 8 won't give you a touchscreen on your device, but it does provide you with an easier way to use that social networking site.
