A New Way to Look at Facebook

Posted on February 10, 2010 by - 1,209 views

If you’re like me and sick and tired of the “so-called” upgrades to the Facebook web interface.
Why not try something new?

The good folks at Microsoft has just launched a new Silverlight 4 client application for Facebook.

Typically the installation is a 4 step process

  1. When you click on the link, the website checks if you have the Developer Preview Edition of Silverlight 4. If you don’t have the software, then it will ask you to install it. If you already have it, then you can install the client software (Step 3)
  2. Once Silverlight 4 has finished installing, you will need to restart the computer
  3. Then go back to the website to install the Facebook Client software.
  4. Then type your email address and password used to log in to Facebook

Then you’re done!

Here’s a few sample screenshots of the Facebook Client in action:

I really love the “look and feel” to this client application

So bye bye web interface (and your advertisement $$$$)
Hello Silverlight Facebook!
