One face of life that most of them have in common is Facebook. Yep. Facebook. It’s rare to meet anyone at school not using Facebook, even more rare to find someone who ignores Facebook entirely. For Mac users who want to connect to Facebook the options are plenty, starting with a browser window. Or, just use Face.
The Face Of Facebook
Face for Facebook is a very inexpensive Mac app that connects you to, well, Facebook. It kinda sorta looks and works much like the Facebook app for iPhone and iPad, but on the Mac.
The toolbar across the top of Face is tabbed to make it easier to navigate within Facebook. You can open multiple windows at the same time, receive notifications in Notification Center, and get to Facebook one or both of two ways.
Face opens with a click to the icon in the Mac’s Menubar, but also works as a standalone, Dock-based application that runs on the Desktop. One feature that most of us who use Face really like is– insert a drum roll here… no advertising.
It’s just raw Facebook on your Mac’s screen.
Face comes with plenty of settings in Preferences, but nothing overwhelming. Click to display Face on either Dock or Menubar or both (or, not at all; haven’t tried that setting yet).
There’s even a simple slider to adjust opacity of the app window.
I know more than a few teachers and students who prefer to use Face for Facebook vs. using a browser window. And, you’ll get change back from a dollar.
