    For me, it's not. But I don't use FB notifications, I don't want crap from FB pushed to me. I open the app, read my friends updates, post comments, likes, and my own updates, and then close the app. It works GREAT for that. :)

    It fills my feed up with all the game crap my friends are playing.... I don't get why as the iOS amd Android apps don't do it. It blows.

    If you go to the Facebook site and hide all the apps from your feed, they won't show up. I make it a point to nuke any new game whatever that shows up in my feed as soon as I see it.

    Its ok... I pretty much use it the same way iamtim uses it. Notifications take a little while to refresh and for it to highlight/show. It does need a little more work to it!

    there are other alternatives - facebook touch

    Not horrible at all, in fact, it's great. And how FB is integrated into WP8 is awesome. I had an Android HTC Shift and never used FB on it; I was too tired of the cluttered interface and all the posts from everyone under the sun. In WP8 I created a family account and all their FB updates and pics are located in one nice location.

    On an Android or iOS device it may be bad, but in WP8 FB integrates beautifully.

    i don't think it is horrible but I don't really use it that often to be fair. Does what I need it to do when I need to use it. I don't use notifications because I would just be spammed with garbage so can't comment on that feature.

    I don't think I want notifications either. As long as I can post stuff to groups, friends and my wall once in a while and rarely read posts on groups I think I will be fine. As it is Facebook is so addictive so this might actually be a good thing. Thanks for all the replies.

    Personally I mostly use the built in FB under the people screen. If you want to check your feed it's the easiest way. The official app isn't as nice. It's not as bad as most make it out to be either.

    Like Frek, I also just use the FB functionality integrated into the OS. It's much simpler.

    FB chat is integrated with messaging app. As long as your contact has FB info from FB then you just message them. And if they go offline it will switch to mobile and staybin same thread.

    There are some for download, and the FB app also has messaging, but you can use the built in WP messaging app for SMS, MMS and FB.

    You're referring to the instant messaging feature Facebook has right? Is it all instantaneous?

    The Facebook app is fine, and I'm a fairly heavy user.

    Many of the iOS and Android people insist it isn't good enough because it doesn't include features to manage groups, but I don't manage any groups so I don't care.

    The other nice thing about it is that it doesn't include the spam from the iOS and Android versions. On my S3, whenever you log in to FB via the "official" app, half of your feed is "Joe likes Citibank. Sally likes Bacardi. Angelo likes American Airlines. Sam likes Samsung." None of that on the WP app.

    Yes the FB messaging is built into the OS via the messages app. I wish they would have built in support for other IM methods like AIM, etc. but maybe it will come in the future. One issue is it lists all of your FB contacts and it doesn't really say who is online or offline.

    I like the integrated fb chat. I like how all messaging is in one place.

    The only problem is that it works fine when the other person osbon their computer using fb chat, but if they're on iPhone fb chat ot doesn't work for some reason. It shows up on their website messages, bit doesn't do through to the iPhone chat app

    This is a big concern me for me as well as I use Facebook A LOT

    I just want to make sure - if I don't want Facebook IM integrated with SMS I don't have to, right? I really don't want something where I try and text someone and it tries to send it as a facebook message, since you don't necessarily know if someone's online, or even if they are online, if they're at their computer.

    That is false. My wife and I have used WP FB chat and iOS FB Messenger without issue many times before i got a WP8 phone.

    Must be something on my end. My girlfriend and i can never get it to work.

    I think problem comes from people that choose to appear offline all the time. WP sends them messages instead of chat. That's my best guess

    just wanted to point out "facebook by cambo". dont know if it has been discussed on here but i think it's the best facebook app on windows phone. and judging by the reviews it has gotten i am not alone in this thinking. just wanted to point that app out in case anyone was stuck not liking the MS made facebook app.

    All the other Facebook apps are just wrappers around touch.facebook.com. It is sad that some of them are actually attempting to charge
