The Facebook Messenger desktop software is now available for Windows.  The messenger software lets you chat with your Facebook friends and be instantly notified about new events like comments, tags and photos.

Sadly you can’t yet take part in group chats of video calls, but its likely these features will be added in the future.

The software is currently availably only on Windows 7 with a Vista version ‘being worked on’ – there are no plans for support of Windows XP.
