Facebook Toolbar sits silently at the top of your desktop and offers twelve basic shortcuts to various parts of Facebook i.e. profile, groups and photo. One of the handiest features of Facebook Toolbar however is an inbuilt alert system like an IM client, which informs you if anything has changed in your profile since you last checked on it. The Facebook Toolbar also integrates with Windows Live Writer which means that any new comments or posts on your wall are also added to your document. This makes for a quick and easy way of keeping track of everything that is going on with your Facebook profile.
As well as making Facebook easier to use, Facebook Toolbar gives you a number of useful functions that can make your Facebook experience even better. If you use Facebook regularly you'll know how annoying it can be to open up the news feed to find a bunch of advertisements and other things. In order to avoid that, you can use one of the many Facebook Toolbar add-ons which allow you to easily block ads from appearing on your desktop as well as your mobile apps. These Facebook Tools integrates with Facebook's own advertising platform and gives you the ability to browse through your account and block the ads you don't want to see and make them appear less often. It also integrates with the popular Pocketbook social bookmarking service, allowing you to pin any web page or article to a specific location in your Facebook News Feed which helps you avoid being bombarded by random ads.
Facebook Toolbar offers a host of other useful functions, which, if you use it correctly, can really improve your Facebook experience. However, like all add-ons, you need to be careful about installing an incompatible or harmful extension. The best way to avoid problems is to look for reviews of different Facebook extensions and decide whether you want to go for one of those or not. You can then download a Facebook toolbar from the website or, if you're feeling a little more adventurous, just install the Facebook Toolbar Add-On from the Facebook website itself. The Facebook Toolbar Add-On will also install a number of other useful Facebook applications, including: Facebook Search, Facebook Lite News, Facebook redesign, Facebook Wall, and Facebook Events.
