* Google Chrome Extension is also available with Facebook friends wall/wiki/Image/Video features: http://goo.gl/zwueK
SerendApp icon will be in your panel extensions bar, just click on it ! Right click on it to see options (configure features to launch: multiple tabs, autoplay with youtube videos, shuffle time, wiki language ...)
* For other browsers, the Facebook app is ready also :). The application page is here (click on "Go to App" to authorize and then launch it): http://goo.gl/cdfeq
*Update Facebook app to newest version 1.5.4 for bug fixes; it works now with SerendApp; activate "Facebook app" in menu/parameters/contacts if you met issues with previous update
* If your Facebook app crashes (force close from official app due to recent unfixed bugs for gingerbread or other systems with 1.5.3 version), just go to menu/parameters/"contacts & friends" and choose "facebook web" instead of "facebook app" (and "contact" if you want).
If nothing happen, try to logout in menu/parameters/"manage facebook" and test again ; it won't affect your shortcuts ;)
* For Music feature: some players won't play "next" music in shuffle mode; if available, see menu/shuffle (party shuffle) or similar & activate it
