F!acedeck: Sleeker Way to Use Facebook

Facebook black logoEvery time any major changes is made on Facebook, there will be users that dislike it. Ever since Facebook rolled out the new profile layout to everyone, there are quite a number of people complaining, expressing how much they hate it.

Whether you hate the new profile layout or just grew bored with the overall Facebook interface, F!acedeck might just be the refresher you need.

The dark and blue themed Silverlight Facebook client features an interface similar to that of Windows Phone 7’s UI, which spells sleekness and awesomeness.

News Feed

F!acedeck: Full Feed View
Full feed

You can choose to view your news feed in full feed, grid, or photo feed (obviously, photos only).

In the full feed view (screenshot above), your news feed will be displayed alongside with some recently uploaded photos by your friends. You can comment and like statuses as usual, but not like comments.

In grid view, the news feed is displayed side by side horizontally. Clicking on the arrow on any item will give you the option to comment or like. The number of comments and likes of an item won’t be readily available in this view, unlike in the full feed view.

Photo Viewing

Photo viewer

Photo viewing experience in F!acedeck is enjoyable. Photos look more beautiful with a dark background, and you can browse photos in an album easily with the thumbnails on the left. On the right, you can read comments left by others, or add one yourself.

Instead of showing a stupid square when you hover over someone’s name tagged in the photo, F!acedeck will highlight the person in a spotlight style while dimming the remaining. You can also tag your friends on a photo the same way you do it on Facebook.

The only downside is that you cannot like the photos.

Other features

  • Facebook Chat
  • Events
  • Inbox (messages)
  • Notifications

Demo

F!acedeck is supported on both Windows and Mac, as long as Silverlight is installed.

    It is definitely awesome but unfortunately in my country, Facebook is still blocked so that all other ways to connect to this social network also lowered the speed. 🙁

    I sometimes have to use other methods to connect to it. Frustrated!

    This is amazingly awesome!! It’s downloading as we speak, and I’m excited to try it! Like many out there, I wasn’t too happy with the new layout, and I’m still getting used to it. Now maybe I won’t have to.

    Thanks so much!

    The downside is obviously, you cannot use any Facebook app in the client. But if you don’t use any of those F!acedeck can really be a good alternative.
