Facebook, the world's largest social media network with more than 2.8 billion monthly active users, now has a desktop version. Facebook for PC allows you to do everything you usually do with your Facebook web browser version like sharing content, connecting with your friends and family, or chatting with other people. If you are a Facebook user and have a PC, you will find this desktop application pretty handy.

Key features

  • Share content: You can create posts and stories, share photos, videos, or GIFs and tag other people, update your status, and many more.
  • Stay up to date: You will be able to receive notifications for new comments, reactions to your posts, friend requests, event invitations.
  • Connect with a rich community: Consult what your Facebook friends are doing, check their posts, find the latest updates from your groups, and discover new communities that share your interests.
  • Messenger integration: You can instantly access your Messenger conversations in your desktop application.
  • Organize events: You can organize an event and invite your friends to participate. Facebook will automatically create a group where you will be able to share the event-related information, share messages in the chat, and everything else you need. That is pretty convenient.
  • Live streaming: Easily create live videos using your computer’s integrated or external camera, streaming software, or any other encoding device.
  • Intuitive interface: The desktop app is similar to the web version, so you will feel familiar with the interface. You will also get access to tabs like Home, Watch, MarketPlace, and Video Games, as well as shortcuts, saved links, and you will have the ability to manage multiple profiles.
  • UI dark mode: Enable the stylish dark mode. Just click on that top right arrow again and select “Switch to New Facebook”, a prompt may appear to let you choose between the Light and the Dark mode. You can change it at any time by clicking on the same top-right arrow and selecting the mode you prefer.
