Messenger Desktop App

A Facebook desktop application has long-been rumored, and now it’s here. Without much fanfare at all, you can now keep tabs on your notifications, friend requests, ticker, and chat all without opening your browser.
TechIT and The Verge originally revealed the available download, which you can access here.
There’s been speculation as to when Facebook would offer such an application, and what it would do, and it appears that it’s about as basic as it gets. Messenger for Windows basically brings the right-hand side of your Facebook home page to your desktop.
Of course, it does have a few implications, namely the death of competitor messaging systems. The likes of AIM and Yahoo Messenger have been struggling to compete with integrated offerings from social platforms, and the Facebook Messenger app has been a major threat to market veterans.

The one feature we wish were available would be the viewing and commenting controls that you have when you’re visiting Facebook in-browser. Via Messenger, the ticker won’t actually reveal the items it’s announcing: instead, you’re redirected to the site. Included items like listening in with friends or viewing pictures via the desktop app would be a huge improvement.
But as far as its utilitarian purposes go, Messenger does well. And it’s also got us waiting for a more fully-fledged desktop Facebook experience.
