These version has placed People app on start screen which prompts updates notification and permits you to share fresh post to Facebook and Twitter respectively. The People app also displays whole contact lists of social accounts. But the People app has no option to share from additional social apps. Due to lack of few other features, some window 8 users dislike it.
After exploring windows 8 store page in order to get official app of Facebook and Twitter, I have shortlisted 7 preferred and best social apps so far. These are:
1. Tweetro: This app is used to act in twitter. Tweetro is already explained in previous post.
An awesome MetroTwit app is ready to fulfill twitter’s need. There is no live tile anywhere in it. It shows update tweets with photos and replies option in single column. MetroTwit app supports in handling every activities on Twitter.

It is specially designed to work as Instant Messenger (IM) in the Windows 8 environment. IM+ app helps to make online chat with different IM services like Yahoo, AOL, Windows, Facebook, Google and others openly. This app main screen is fairly plain. But some limitations of IM+ app are as follows – it is unable to find control buttons to block unknown people and during offline, users don’t get email alerts to reply.
