Facebook Beta

Are you not happy with the Facebook app available on windows phone? Is the integration of Facebook not enough for you and you want a good Facebook app for your phone?

It seems we are not really having quality apps for all the social networks as there are on other platform. However these days we are able to see some quality updates and quality apps for most of the social networking sites. Microsoft also seems to be working on the apps issue now as we are able to see a number of apps like YouTube and Facebook from them. Also they are constantly updating these apps.

Microsoft has updated the Facebook app from the previous version available on windows phone 7…. but still lacks features. Microsoft has been constantly updating the Facebook app for windows phone 7 and windows phone 8.

The released version is not really that great, however you can grab the updates before they are released by installing the beta version of the app- Facebook Beta. Although it has a beta status, for the most part the app is stable and it can give frequent users of Facebook an early look at upcoming features and improvements.

It’s called PCAutoWaker, and in my opinions it’s one of the coolest apps to arrive in the Android Market in a long time.  Many MUO readers that…

When someone’s email account gets hacked, it’s usually the friends who find this out first, unless the hacker has completely booted the owner out of his inbox by changing the password. This is because friends are the ones who start receiving spam mails or plea for money. When this happens, what one normally does is call their friend or contact them on an alternate email address to let them know that their email account has been compromised. Now Microsoft has introduced a new system that allows friends to report hacked accounts to Hotmail directly. When you get a spam message…

Google’s new social networking site Google+ has taken over the internet like a storm. The initial impressions have been very positive and many Facebook users have already migrated to Google Plus.

I’ve always liked Twitter’s 140 character limitation because it challenges my message to be more direct and succinct, but there are occasions when you simply need a paragraph or two to express what you really need to say. Try for example debating a controversial issue in 140 characters and you might well lose an argument. So for those times when you want to stay within the Twitterverse without posting a dozen tweets, there are several options available to do just that.  Here are 6 possibilities you should check out, which allow you to write longer Tweets on Twitter. TwitLonger Topsy’s…

Recently Facebook introduced a new layout for the profile page with some changes. The new page highlights important information about you and prominently displays your friends.
