Editor's Choice: Facebook adds popular Twitter app

Seesmic's video blogging application is now compatible with Facebook. Seesmic is a popular Twitter app because it allows users to better organize and view tweets. A new version of the Seesmic desktop client for Facebook, the world's largest social network, was announced at the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival in Austin, Texas. 

This marks the first time Facebook has opened up its feeds to a desktop app. 


Following Twitter's lead, Facebook has recently increased its use of news feeds in a developing turf war with the popular microblogging service. Later this month, the Seesmic program will be modified to combine Twitter and Facebook updates. A Seesmic app for the iPhone will be released in the near future.
