This program is a Facebook desktop client designed for Mac. With its help, you can easily manage your Facebook account, send messages to your friends, change your current status, comment on other people's posts, and so much more.

The application lives on your Menu Bar. All you need to do is to click its Menu Bar icon, log in to your Facebook account, and that's it. You have access to various notification settings, options to customize the appearance of the main screen, and 2 display modes to choose from (Mobile or Desktop). Personally, I prefer using the Mobile mode as it occupies a small portion of my desktop.

Go for Facebook also lets you define a global hotkey for immediately revealing its main window. Another important advantage is the fact that it uses a very small amount of CPU resources while operating on your Mac.

In my testing, the program worked flawlessly. It was very simple to configure and didn't display any errors.

In conclusion, this utility proves to be a great alternative to using your default web browser for managing your Facebook account. It's easy-to-use, works 100%, and comes without a price.
