If you’re one of those people who can’t keep away from your Facebook, but you know you have to do other things on your smartphone, then you might want to install this new app, now available for Android smartphones and tablets. Called Bubbles for Facebook, it lets you see, react, respond, and update your Facebook account, no matter what you’re doing on your device. This way, you will never miss a Facebook post by your friends or the pages that you like, ever again.
Setting it up and learning how to use it is pretty simple, particularly if you’ve been using the Facebook chat heads feature. Once you’ve finished the simple set-up, then the F bubble will stay on top of your screen, over any app you use, for as long as you want it. You can even move it around the screen if it interferes with the other app windows you’re using. Just touch the bubble and your Facebook feed will open.
You’re free to share your updates, like and comment on your friends’ updates, and even follow the pages you want to be updated with. You will be able to access not just the feed, but your notifications, chats, photos, and videos as well. So it’s basically like having Facebook open all the time, except that you can also do other things, multi-tasking at its finest. And anytime you feel like you’re getting too much Facebook, then just adjust the settings so the bubble won’t be there anymore, then just turn it on again when you want to.
You can download Bubble for Facebook from the Google Play Store for free. They are a 3rd party app though and are not associated with the social media giant.
