Unlike the software designed for Windows platform, all the software installed in Mac OS X can be easily removed with little ease. Facebook Desktop is quite a popular third party application which gains a large popularity among Mac users and offers additional functionality to the OS X platform. Facebook Desktop has been developed by Facebook as a separate application to use alongside their social networking website. With the help of this application, Mac users can access Facebook using a simple desktop interface, which is extremely convenient.
One of the major advantages of using Facebook Desktop as a third party application is that it allows you to run various desktop views of Facebook in the background. With the help of Facebook icons and Facebook menus, you can switch between various Facebook applications with just a few taps. The Facebook desktop view is especially useful for those who have a slow computer as it allows them to browse through different groups, messages, and posts even while they are in the midst of working. The Facebook tablet version also acts as a great alternative to the iPad or iPhone and allows you to view Facebook applications on the larger screen, just as if they were printed on the real tablets. In addition, there are several other features available in the Facebook desktop view such as chat bubbles and desktop shortcuts, which make this application highly flexible.
In addition, the Facebook applications in the desktop version can be run from either the Mac operating system or from the Android operating system. However, the Facebook apps for the iPad and iPhone do run smoothly on both iOS devices. To conclude, Facebook Desktop provides a fast and functional interface to use Facebook on the go and is available for both the Mac and the Android platforms. It also provides a side-by-side comparison of the Facebook applications on the mobile and tablet versions allowing you to find out which one is more suitable for your device.
