Softonic review

An exclusive Facebook experience

Facebook 4 Mac is exactly what it says,  Facebook for Mac! This social networking app allows users to enjoy Facebook exclusively. It is standalone and excludes itself from other apps and web pages, allowing you to enjoy extra features that will give you a better Facebook experience. Facebook 4 Mac is like using an upgraded version of the famous social media site where you do not have to worry about anything else.

All your Facebook needs

Facebook 4 Mac may be an independent app, but its interface looks like a regular web browser. However, instead of tabs for other web pages, it dedicates all its tab to Facebook’s other features, such as notifications, messages, and settings. The approach proved to be convenient since it allows you to jump and navigate from one feature to another without having to close the page you are currently in. You can check your messages even if you do not close your Facebook newsfeed. More, the previous tab you visit automatically refreshes once you redirect back to it. The app also offers users other viewing options, such as opening a separate and larger window for your newsfeed alone and opening multiple chat boxes with no problem. 

There are not many special and unique features users can find on Facebook 4 Mac compared to its browser version or the actual website. However, having it as a separate app itself is an advantage. For one, it avoids crashing and accidentally closing as it runs separately in the background. More, should your browser experience lags and have trouble with plug-ins, your Facebook session will remain uninterrupted, and you can continue using it even if your browser freezes. It is like an equivalent of a mobile Facebook app but with more flexibility and better viewing options. 

For your convenience

Facebook 4 Mac is giving you other alternatives when it comes to fully enjoying the Facebook experience. It is a lightweight software that is easy and convenient to use. It is also not obtrusive and will quietly run in the background if you are not using it. 

PROS

  • Separates Facebook from your browser
  • No installation required
  • Manage from your system tray app
  • Avoid browser crashes

CONS

  • No themes
  • Nothing new or unique
