A modern way to use Facebook
Facebook for Windows 10 includes all the same features of Facebook that those accustomed to the modern interface style are used to.

The Facebook universe at your fingertips!
Facebook for Windows 10 is extremely easy to use. Touch the screen, and the controls will react immediately.
In the left-hand column, you can find quick links to your wall, news feed, messages, events, photos, and your list of friends. On the right, you can see which friends are online and chat with them. In the center of the screen, you'll find status updates tailored to you based on your Facebook activity.
Changes to account settings and privacy options are accessible from the Settings button in the taskbar. When you choose one of these options, your browser automatically opens the corresponding Facebook page, in conjunction with the application, which actually isn't very practical. If these functions were integrated within Facebook for Windows 10, it would definitely improve the way the app works.
