Facebook had released its official app for Windows 10 and Windows 10 Mobile some months ago. But the performance of the app on Windows platform is far from satisfactory. The app crashes a lot and takes lot of time to load.

The company had earlier revealed that to use the Facebook app on Windows 10 Mobile you should be having minimum of 2GB RAM, to avoid the app crashing.

The solution given by the company is far from satisfactory since the Mobiles on Windows Platform with 2GB RAM are hardly available in numbers except for couple of them namely 950, 950XL.

However now for users on Windows 10 Mobile there is an alternative app SLIM-SOCIAL to be the best alternative app for using Facebook on Windows 10. The below are the advantages of using the app on lower end devices especially.

  • It has a simple and modern design: just what you need;
    – Is Open Source: the app code is on GitHub , anyone can verify the application ‘s authenticity and contribute to the development
    – it is free and without advertising;
    – is not intrusive;
    – Respect your Privacy: this application does not require special permissions.

Above all the app is a UWP app (but currently available only for Mobile)and requires just 1MB of space on your (SD Card or Phone Memory compared to the official app which requires close to 200MB of phone memory space which is very high). If you are a heavy user of Facebook then Slim Social is the best app available for Windows 10.

If you would like to use it you can download it from the below link. I am already using it and its the best app to use Facebook on Windows 10.
