    I don't understand a lot about the unified windows store. But since I heard that there will be only one app store for Tablets, PCs, Laptops and Phones, a question popped up into my mind.

    I heard the apps on the unified store can use the same code for Phones and Tablets. So is there a possibility that we may see the official 'Facebook' app (made by Facebook, Inc) on my Lumia also?

    Please answer this question.

    Possibility? Yes, there is.

    Probability? Only Microsoft and Facebook, Inc. can answer that with certainty. But recent developments* with the WP8.1 version of these apps suggest that they are working together, hence that probability should be closer to 100% than it is to 0%.

    *- The Facebook app from Microsoft is not in conflict with the Messenger App from Facebook, where the first one asks the user to install the latter for messaging purposes. If the two companies weren't coordinated, chat would not have been removed from the Microsoft Facebook app. Now, it's just a question of who is going to make what.
