Looking for a continuous stream of feeds of your favorite RSS category? If yes, then you can try the MyRSS application for Facebook and get your favorite feeds to appear in your profile. You can even add your own feeds with the help of this application.

Honesty Box
Does your colleague who is sitting in the cubicle next to you have stinky feet? You want to tell him to wash his socks once in a while, but don't have what it takes to tell it on his face? Then, welcome Honesty Box. This is a very interesting app on Facebook that helps you leave anonymous messages in your friend's profile. All you need to do is use Honesty Box and send an anonymous message. If you are a girl, your message will be displayed in pink and if you are a boy, it will be displayed in blue. Don't worry, your name won't be revealed and it won't even show up in your profile.

Animoto Videos
If you wish to post a special video on your profile, then try Animoto videos. This is a fun Facebook app that allows you to select music and photos of your choice. The selected photos and music are then converted into an MTV style 30 second video clip. These videos are called ":30 Spot" and will be featured on your profile. And yes, do not worry about plagiarism as no two videos created will ever be the same.

One of the most popular Facebook apps for business is Marketplace. It is an online platform that helps sellers as well as buyers to interact with each other. You can sell, bargain and even buy commodities and products with this application. This application is found to be one of the best Facebook apps for business.

There are many more of these popular apps for Facebook like: TripAdvisor - Cities I've Visited, PuzzleBee, Web Sudoku, Countdown Calendar, etc. that you should try. Make your Facebook experience delightful and interesting with the help of these applications.
