I seem to be using Facebook less and less, but there are sometimes things that make me want to dive back into the blue and white world. My Desk Friend is one of those things.
The little robot connects to your profile and can let you know when you have messages, when your friends log in, and when you’ve been poked.
It also works for other generic services, such as letting you know when you have an email, but it seems to be designed around Facebook. The weird little penguin gets it’s own section of your profile and your friends can give it gifts and things like that. Okay, that may be taking it too far, but it is cute, no?
