How to Get Back Old FacebookThis is not the first time I’m sharing a Facebook desktop client. In the past, I have posted many desktop clients, including a long list of best Facebook desktop applications.

This latest Facebook desktop client is by Microsoft and is based on Silverlight.

Microsoft has released a fully functional Facebook desktop client, based on Silverlight, and is available for Windows and Mac users. It is available as a developer preview release.
