FaceBubbles makes keeping up to date with your Facebook friends quick and easy - you don't even have to leave the comfort of your desktop.
Every time a friend posts on Facebook, a bubble appears on your desktop containing the entire post, letting you quickly and easily catchup on the latest news and gossip.
The beauty of FaceBubbles is that you no longer have to keep refreshing your Facebook page, instead of you going to your friends, your friends come to you.

* Reply to your friends in an instant, by clicking the back-arrow icon within the bubble.
Showing You Like a Post
* Give the thumbs up to a post by clicking the tick icon, or click it again to un-like.
* See a list of those who also like the post at the end of the bubble.
