Facebook Announces Messenger For WindowsBy: Shawn Hess - March 6, 2012
Die-hard Facebook addicts will be happy to know that staying updated and connected jut got easier than ever! Facebook users can click here to download messenger for windows and never miss an update or reminder again. If this sounds like old news, that’s because it is. Apparently Facebook has been testing the service for months and leaked rumors of the releaser back in late december.
Currently the application only works with Windows seven and you must be logged in to Facebook to receive your updates. This will no doubt be a heavily downloaded app. A Mac version is on the way and should be available soon.
Here’s what people had to say about the release on Twitter:
After three months of testing, Facebook Messenger is coming to a Windows desktop near you – on.mash.to/A5X3IQ

The feedback sounds very good so far. If you don’t have it yet, you better check it out. It’s a must have for any die-hard Facebook user who also uses Windows. Sorry Mac users, yours is on the way.
