Seesmic Desktop Fully Integrates Facebook: It’s Awesome 2009

Ever wanted to do everything you do on Facebook…on your desktop? Thanks to the new Facebook API for status updates, there are apps springing up to do just that. Today, Twitter desktop app maker Seesmic Desktop launched this exact integration: it’s very neat indeed.

The short of it: Seesmic Desktop (Seesmic Desktop reviews) now lets you use Facebook on the desktop in the same way that it - and rival TweetDeck (TweetDeck reviews) - allowed you to use Twitter. But while TweetDeck was the first to let you post updates to Facebook, the Facebook API is enabling you to receive all your Facebook (Facebook reviews) updates on the desktop, and even “like” these feed items without ever visiting Facebook.com.


I’ve been testing the new version of the app this afternoon and it’s mightily impressive, pulling in thumbnails and letting you break off certain users into new userlist columns. The drawback, however, is that most of my friends simply use their Facebook feed to repost their Twitter (Twitter reviews) messages.

We covered the features of this new release earlier this week, but today it should become widely available. Also check out the video below for information on the new release.
