Facebook LIVE TILE is a free Windows 8 app, that creates and shows the latest Facebook picture feeds posted by your Facebook friends in a live tile format, at the Start Screen of your Windows 8 PC. The app updates after every 15 minutes, hence showing you the latest photo feeds.
You can also filter the feeds by using different filter options, so that you can get only the desired feeds. Facebook LIVE TILE is a great medium to continuously stay updated with the latest picture posts made by your friends. And it also removes the slow and time consuming process of signing into the Facebook Account in the web browsers.

Creating Facebook live tile in Start Screen:
This app is really simple to use. There’s just one single screen, using which you can get the task done. So this means, there’s no sub screens or other screens, and hence you don’t have to switch continuously between different screens, without actually knowing on which screen you are. The app has one clear purpose, which is to create a live tile on the start screen, showing the latest feeds which are related to photos posts made by your Facebook friends. The app is absolutely functional on this aspect.
The user interface does all right, it’s simple and quite basic. The moment you open Facebook LIVE TILE, the app asks you to connect with your Facebook credentials. One important thing to remember while doing so (connecting to Facebook), is to Check-on the Keep Me Logged In To Live Tile – Win 8 option, present just below the Password text field. After logging, you’ll get the only screen of the app. Here, you’ll find the instructions of building Live Tile and a little description about the app. You can choose the desired filter from the Filter drop down list, and click on BUILD LIVE TILE Button.
One good thing that you can do before clicking on the BUILD LIVE TILE Button is click on Check Latest Feeds button. This shows the latest feeds filtered by the selected category on the right side of screen, which you can use to check weather, the app is showing the correct feeds or not, plus in a way you’ll have a preview of the live tile. Besides these, clicking on the feed present on the right side, opens that feed in web browser.
One more very important requisite of the app is, the app’s live tile in the Start Screen has to be in the Wider tile format, in order to show live tiles.
