As Windows 8.1 is set to roll out around the world, Facebook has released their very first app for the new OS marking the first time they have supported it with a native application.

Social networks are extremely prevalent in today’s society. You’d probably find it hard to find one person who didn’t have a prominent presence on at least one. However, the market is dominated by the big networks such as Facebook and Twitter. While in this article I will cover these, the big focus will on social networks which are a little less known.

The Windows Phone network gives users a humongous amount of choice so not exploring different options would just be frivolous. Read on to find out about the networks I recommend!

It may seem strange that the first thing the store page for Facebook+ Lite tells you is that the app lets you scroll through your newsfeed vertically  - rather than the side to side scrolling that has been adopted by the Windows 8 Start screen and the vast majority of apps.

This may seem like a minor selling point – although the app is actually free – but it certainly gets things off to a good start for anyone who is slightly resistant to the new app format. Facebook is constantly open in a browser tab on my desktop, and I’ll try any app that grants me easy, constant access to the social network.

In modern society, social networks have become the norm. Gone are the days of basic communication — we like to share everything else with the world over the web now. Nowadays, I never have to check the news or even look outside my window for the weather – I’m sure that someone’s “Tweeting” about it. However, social networks do take different forms and the majority of us use a few different networks.

Although, keeping in control of every single one is often a hard task. Fliptoast is a brand new Windows 8 app which combines four of the biggest social networks into one easy to use application. Bringing together Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn makes Fliptoast a powerful app which will save you the trouble of navigation and organization.

Think about screen grabbing and two ideas probably spring to mind – hitting the Prnt Scr key or using SnagIt. Taking the later route is a little primitive, while opting to using the latter means having to part with a little cash. SnapCrab - yes, crab, not grab – is a free, highly configurable screen grabbing tool that could just become your new best friend.

At its heart, SnapCrab is very much what you would expect, but it also goes far beyond the capabilities of many other similar tools, and all without requiring you to part with a penny. Whether you are a blogger, a web site owner, a writer or just have some other need to taker screenshots on a regular basis, this may be the tool that makes you rethink the way you work.

Facebook has become an integral part of our lives — it’s really not an exaggeration. We can’t eat, sleep or perform any of our daily chores without sneaking a peek at what others are up to or telling people what we are up to.

We are not chained to a desktop all day. So how do we check what our friends are up to on the go? This is where Facebook app for windows mobile comes in handy.

Back in December there was a brief flurry of excitement when a pre-release version of Facebook Messenger for Windows was leaked. Sadly the appearance of the software was short-lived and it wasn’t long before it disappeared again.

Three short months later, the app has been officially unveiled, and for anyone who just can’t get enough of the world’s most popular social network, it’s a seriously useful addition to the desktop.
