It’s great that Windows 8 comes with built-in features to let users know the latest updates from Facebook and Twitter.

It’s really good because it lets you view your entire address book from your email social media accounts such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and the likes. But if you want to get instant notifications and share your updates with friends on the social media platform, you need an app.
