Facebook is finally landed on Windows 8 platform, which is especially joyous for Windows RT users. Microsoft has promised the official Facebook app for Windows 8 during the Microsoft Build conference held in June, and it’s finally been released together with the arrival of Windows 8.1.

Facebook for Windows 8 is essentially Facebook for Windows 8.1, as it’s supported only on devices running Windows 8.1. So if you’re unable to search for Facebook app in the Windows Store, or encountering error when installing the Facebook modern app, do update to Windows 8.1.
