Facebook seems to quickly be outgrowing the other social networks by leaps and bounds. It is hard to find a friend that hasn’t switched over to it from the other social networks like MySpace and the like. So with that said, why not grab a toolbar that will help you get a little more out of your Facebook usage and help you stay connected with your friends even better?
Once you have installed the Facebook Toolbar add-on, you can easily do the following:
Search Facebook from Anywhere – The Search Box allows you to easily search Facebook no matter where you are. Select a friend from the drop-down to go directly to their profile, or hit “enter” to see the search results.
Get Notified – Icons on the toolbar tell you how many new pokes, friend requests, and messages you have. A pop-up will notify you when your friends update their statuses, write a new note or interact with you on Facebook.
Connect with Friends – Click the icon to open the Facebook friends sidebar. You can sort your friends by name or status and easily interact with them and their profiles.
Share Content – The share button lets you share the page that you are currently browsing by sending it to friends or posting it to your profile.
Upload Photos – The upload photos button lets you find photos on your computer, caption and tag them, and upload them to Facebook.
The Facebook Toolbar extension simply put, makes it much easier to integrate all the fun of Facebook into your favorite browser. You can pick up the add-on via the Firefox Add-ons web site.
