Facebook Touch for Windows 8 is a touchscreen interface that is built specifically for this particular operating system. It does not introduce any new or additional features, but it allows users to interact with the Facebook platform completely by touch instead of using a keyboard or mouse.

It is stable, reliable and free from known bugs or issues. It doesn't require any special calibration or configuration, and users can start interacting with their favorite social media site once the program is installed and they are logged in to the system. The layout is similar, and most buttons are big enough to make navigation simple and hassle-free.

This program only works with Windows 8, and it is not compatible with previous versions. I find there is hardly any difference between using this software and running Facebook from my touchscreen computer that used to have Windows 7, but this one seems a little faster and more responsive. I'm guessing that most of the benefits of this software are being executed in the background, and it's difficult to say exactly what is happening under the hood.

Maybe this is a good thing, since there are no known issues or problems to contend with, and I expect that most users will experience a trouble-free transition. The program is free and secure, and I have yet to experience a freeze, stall or crash. I can upload videos, pictures and enter status updates on-screen without using my keyboard. I can also get into my settings and make changes in the same manner.

The file was easy to download and install, and it automatically updates when new versions become available. I can also set the program to run in the background and send notifications to the desktop, and there are also other ways to customize my user experience.

Windows 8 got off to a rough start, but it seems as though many services and companies are optimizing software to run on this new operating system. Facebook didn't waste any time getting the ball rolling, and I can't think of anything bad to say about my experience up until now.

Pros

Installation is painless.

It runs in the background without draining resources.

The interface is smooth and responsive.

No crashes or bugs to report at this time.

Cons

This program only works on computers that are running Windows 8.
