Facebook:The Largest Social Networking Site

Undoubtedly Facebook is the world largest social networking site and it has around 900 million active users world wide. It has provided a big platform to share the information and suggestions among the friends. Many users used to log into Facebook account to know about the events going on their Facebook account on the regular basis. But when there is some extremely important work on the internet, they use to forget to log into their Facebook account and miss the status update available into their account.

So if you are also a such kind of Facebook user, then you can avoid this as long as you use Google Chrome. For Chrome browser, there is an extension available in their web store called MystatusBar that lets you to know your Facebook Status update while you’re looking your favorite website in Chrome.

This extension adds a Facebook Status Bar to the bottom of your Chrome browser, where it stays visible in every tab you have opened. That way you can keep up with the latest messages, friend requests, and notifications, all without clicking away from your current page. If your friends upload any photos or refresh their status you won’t miss them because a notification appears right in to MyStatusBar installed in Chrome browser.

How to get started with MyStatusBar in Chrome

  1. First of all catch the MyStatusBar extension from the Chrome Web Store and click on add to Chrome.
  2. Wait for some time until you see a new tab, then click the Log in to Facebook button at the bottom.
  3. That will open a pop-up window, where you’ll click Log in with Facebook.
  4. Now you’ll see a permissions list. You’ll probably want to allow them all to get the maximum benefit from MyStatusBar, but you can certainly disable any you’re uncomfortable with. (Needless to say, using an extension like this requires access to your account.

  5. Finish the setup by clicking allow button.

And that’s it! Now just open a new tab and you’ll see your Facebook Status Bar at the bottom. It works much like the standard status bar, but adds a Search field and a handy “Share this page” button (useful for sharing any page that doesn’t have its own Facebook button). My only complaint is that when you click, say, the message or notification icon, it opens a new Facebook tab rather than a pop-up showing the actual content.
