During today's Microsoft Build conference, CEO Steve Ballmer announced that Windows 8 is finally getting an official Facebook app. This announcement comes almost a year after the new Windows operating system was announced.
Facebook and Microsoft have partnered up to build a native app for the company's flagship operating system, and as a result, Facebook will default searches to Microsoft's Bing search engine. In return, Microsoft will deeply integrate Facebook into Windows 8.
There are also reports coming in that Facebook-owned Instagram will also be getting a Windows 8 app and that tMicrosoft hopes Twitter's Vine will follow suit. Ballmer also announced that Windows 8 will be getting an official version of Flipboard as well as an NFL Fantasy Football App.
