With Windows 8.1 live today, Microsoft also rolled out the official Facebook app for its latest OS. Windows 8 already had a native Twitter app but users had to rely on third-party apps for getting in touch with their Facebook friends, but not now onwards. Facebook app for Windows 8 looks to be as feature-rich as its other mobile versions.

Windows got tablet-optimized Twitter and Facebook before Android and in a shorter span of time. Telling!
