Facebook Messenger Desktop App – Win7
Facebook is beta testing a new Windows 7 Desktop Application that lets you chat to your friends without being on the Facebook.com website.
Similar to Windows Live Messenger, the application will let you:
– Message and Chat with your Facebook friends
– Get notifications as they happen on Facebook, eg someone liking your photo
– See the ticker updates
This desktop app is only available on Windows 7 machines. Currently the beta testing is closed, but Facebook will be opening it up to more users soon.
Here is a screen shot of the application:
