Continuing the theme of listing some top stuff, here’s my pick of facebook apps (both web and desktop apps).
Syncs facebook events with iCal for mac users. Very very handy! Saves having to hit export for each individual event and you can customize whether it syncs events you’re attending, maybe attending or not attending.
This is the only functionless time wasting app I really use. It’s got nothing on Sim City, but it’s fun adding a person each day, adding people to friends’ cities and trying to keep the stats balanced, and at 2mins a day, doesn’t waste too much time. I almost have 600 people in my city Tommopopolopolis!
Based on the Myers Briggs personality test, this app makes the most of the social networking side of facebook to allow you to see what your friends’ results are. It’s quite interesting.
One of the staple apps of facebook, notes is awesome cause you can sync it to your blog. So this post should appear on facebook later today.
Who can be bothered posting their status twice? Not me. So when I’m not online and using ping.fm to post my status everywhere for me, I use the twitter facebook app to copy my twitter status posted from my phone and post it as my facebook status.
Syncs facebook contacts into your mac’s address book. Not something I really need, but it’s a handy idea.
If you have iPhoto 09 then you will already have this functionality, but for earlier versions of iPhoto, this is a terrific plugin to get your photos onto facebook already tagged and captioned, straight from your iPhoto library.
Is a desktop app that’s essentially the opposite of the iPhoto exporter. You can use it to download whole albums from facebook to iPhoto, handy for when your friends post photos to an event you went to. And it beats going “add to iPhoto library” for each individual photo on facebook, something I think you can only do in safari anyway.
