Back at the PDC 2009 in Los Angeles, CA, Brian Goldfarb showed off the “Microsoft
Silverlight Client for Facebook Beta”. It was released by Microsoft in early 2010
and had millions of downloads for both Windows and the Mac. Over the past few months,
the Facebook app has been further developed by Telerik and is now available as the
first official version under its new name: Telerik
Telerik has taken over the application from
Microsoft and will continue its further development and support as a free application
for everyone to enjoy. Telerik f!acedeck delivers a superior experience to Facebook
users and offers unique features: such as drag-and-drop from the local file system,
access to the video camera, instant loading and smooth scrolling of the Facebook
wall, notifications and chat.
Telerik f!acedeck Client for Facebook is immediately available from
its original location on Microsoft’s website (http://www.silverlight.net/content/samples/apps/facebookclient)
as well as from Telerik’s website (http://facedeck.telerik.com).
The product is free and works on both Windows and Mac OS operating systems with the
Silverlight 4 plugin installed.
