Facebook Desktop Notification app arrives for Macs

updated 12:05 pm EDT, Fri September 11, 2009

Independently developed software

Software developers Lee Byron and Owen Yamauchi have released Facebook desktop notification software for the Mac. An independent release, it places a Facebook icon in the Mac OS Menu Bar, with drop-down notification feeds and Growl-style alerts. It is considered experimental software and has only been tested in Mac OS X 10.5.

    FMenu has been doing this for... maybe a year already? How is this software called "experimental."

    Also I've just started using EventBox to combine twitter, RSS, and facebook into one app and it works great.
