Facebook One is a free Facebook Chrome extension that shows you alerts related to notifications, messages, friend activity on Facebook. Basically, it is a Google Chrome Extension that makes using Facebook a very simple and time saving task. The USP of this Facebook app is that it quickly informs you about any activity taking place relating to your account. You quickly receive alerts like notifications, messages, friend requests etc. on the interface of this app. You just have to stay logged in. It is quite an exclusive app as there are not much apps in this genre. Even though, there are a lot of Facebook apps for Android or iPhone, the list of Facebook app for Windows is quite small. You can check out this app from the link given at the end.
You can directly visit a particular page by choosing from the columns provided on the interface or by typing in the search bar. Facebook One is a good app to stay updated about the recent activities relating to your Facebook account and peeping into your account once in a while without hampering the speed of your work.
Receive Alerts, Visit Pages With This Facebook App
As you can see from the above screenshot, all the functions are segregated in separate columns. Whenever there is an alert related to any of these functions, the software notifies you. You can then check that alert by directly visiting that particular page. This saves you a lot of time as you do not have to perform all the conventional steps that can take some time.
Apart from receiving alerts this Facebook app can be used for another purpose. You can directly visit other pages, profiles of your friends, simply by typing in the search bar given on the top. The app directly leads you to that page. It will fail to work if you are not logged in.
Missing Links In This Facebook App
Even though this simple and efficient app makes facebooking a time saving task, I felt it does have some limitations that can be worked upon. The app does not allow you to post pictures or update your status directly. There is no option on the interface of the app to perform these functions. It only limits you to receiving alerts. These features are provided in its contemporary Facebook One app for Windows 8. Apart from this, the app also does not allow you to manage your columns on the interface. An option to manage columns according to user’s priorities would have been great.
Facebook One is a very nice, easy, straightforward and simple Google Chrome extension that performs its main task without any fuss. It can be quite useful while you are busy working on other things and can sneak into recent activities related to your account without wasting much time. Lastly, since it is a Google Chrome extension, it will obviously not work if you are using any other browser.
