IMFacebook is a free Facebook desktop client for Windows which gives you full control over Facebook interaction right from your Windows system. Practically everything Facebook management related, news feed tracking, commenting, photo browsing, chatting, sharing, notes management can be done from inside IMFacebook, and on top of all that you also get notifications when one of your friends posts something.
Interface of IMFacebook is very similar to various instant messaging clients that are out there, but the difference here is that instead of connecting to MSN or Yahoo, you login to your Facebook account. Your profile name and picture are shown all the way at the top, and down below you have a tab bar with the usual Facebook links being offered, All, Photos, Share, Notes and so on. All of course shows you your entire news feed.
Key features of IMFacebook free Facebook desktop client are:
- Small and lightweight – low resource usage and works very fast

- Create Facebook status updates directly from the desktop client
- Allows you to post comments to other people’s postings

This free Facebook desktop client has a lot to offer, much more useful little features can be found. One thing that we noticed which might be a bit of a turn off for some users, unless they’re Chinese, is that even though the entire interface is in English, there’s a dialog box or two that still shows Chinese. Don’t worry though, these are not crucial parts of IMFacebook, it’s still pretty usable to English speaking individuals.
