Facebook Skin for Messenger is a small program that transforms the stock appearance of Microsoft Messenger into one that looks just like Facebook. The same colors, overall theme and style of Facebook are inserted into the Messenger log-in, profile and chat display. This gives Messenger an entirely new feel, and this adjustment does not interfere with the performance of this popular chat application.

It is important to keep in mind that this software does not change the functionality of Microsoft Messenger. The buttons, chat window and features remain pretty much the same. It doesn't connect Messenger with Facebook either, so there is little practicality associated with using this utility. However, the new skin and theme look great.

I was shocked when my online status bar looked just like the one in Facebook, but I was disappointed to learn that this program doesn't change how my friends appear when they are online. The biggest effect is that all of the main colors are changed to match the ones that are on Facebook. The familiar blue, white and gray colors are now integrated into most of the visible framework of the application.

The installation is fast and clean, and uninstalling the changes can be done without any hassles as well. The installer file is small, and downloading the program only takes a few seconds with a good connection. Keep in mind that this skin only works on Messenger 8.5, and it will crash if you try to use it on earlier versions.

There is no harm in downloading this utility, but remember that all it does is change how Microsoft Messenger appears. However, this is a good tool for people who are tired of seeing the standard Messenger skin every time they open the application and start chatting.
