Question New N8 and have a few questions

Which facebook gadget works best on N8, I am not that keen on the Nokia "social networks" app?

Then for Youtube which I used a lot on my N95/N97, doesn't seem to work correct on N8 any idea?

Edit: When using the "Social Network" and grabbing friends pictures and use them for contacts they seem blurred, does anyone else have this problem?

Thumbs up Quite a few options actually..

You can get all these from the Ovi store -
Gravity is a commercial(paid) Twitter and FB client (primarily Twitter), and has a very easy to use interface. It comes with a 10 day trial.

Socially is a free app that connects you to FB,Twitter,Linkedin and Foursquare and lets you post simultaneous updates on them (location sharing also supported)
It has an added bonus - it can update all your contact's photos with their FB pics, add their birthdays to your calendar, and if you get an incoming call while it's running, it will attempt to identify the operator and circle.

Nimbuzz is a free chat/VOIP software that supports Facebook chat and Twitter updates. It lets you chat on Yahoo/Gtalk/MSN/ICQ/AIM/Facebook, and provides paid SIP/VOIP calls as well.
Fring is another free chat/VOIP s/w but only supports Twitter. It has one advantage over Nimbuzz in that it lets you merge the chat IDs of your contacts.

Thank you for your answer

Have just had my Gravity changed to work with my new N8.

Facebook are now sort of working as well, and will do for now.
