Socializing has become more interactive than ever before. If you’re an avid Facebook fanatic who just can’t steer away from actively socializing and getting updates from everyone on your friends list, then here’s a wonderful application that will add a new twist to the same old Facebook for Android application.

Introducing TalkOver for Android–a brand new way to communicate and interact with your Facebook buddies through real-time chat messages while giving you full control over your personalized chat groups. Being the owner of your own chat group gives you full control over who can join the group chat, what content should be displayed, and what general rules participants in the group must follow.

As user of the application you can also join various chat groups started by other Facebook users.  It’s a way for you to explore myriad content — from rich multimedia galleries to personalized photos and links from other people.

Not only that, you can also make new friends with other people, start a one-on-one conversation, rate shared content, ignore other people, and most importantly, hide behind the mask of identities under 4 profiles.

TalkOver can also keep close guard on all of your activities based on your own chat groups or entire global network. The application can filter inappropriate content, alert you of new notifications, and  share the best content from Twitter and a whole lot more.

You just need to launch the application and give the app authority to access your Facebook credentials and you’re all set to go. It’s that easy.

On the app’s homescreen, you can find different tabs that show personalized feeds, global feeds, or what’s interesting for the day.

On the bottom portion, you’ll find live feeds with the use of the Feeds tab, explore My Chats that keeps track of your chat history, or invite and/or manage contacts with the Contacts tab.

The Feed tab takes you to another three tabs: My Feed, Global Feed and Interesting. My Feed is where all personal activities are neatly arrange on your favorite channels. Global Feed lets you have an overview of the universal list of activities happening on the network. You can also join chat groups listed in the Interesting tab, which shows trending or featured content on the”font-weight: bold;”>

Once you join a particular chat group, you have full control of what the group is sharing.  You can open shared photos, download images, invite other Facebook friends, and even share your own stuff for the world to see.

If you want to know more about a person, you can simply tap a username and the app will automatically let you check his/her user statistics and add the person to your contact list. The app automatically updates itself in real-time, so you’ll never have to worry about delayed response times.  All active chat groups that you have joined are also remembered.

The Profile tab lets you manage your TalkOver profile.  You can configure up to 4 different identities that you can use. Only one profile can be selected at a time. To help first-time users, the application also gives a short walkthrough in the form of display tutorials.

TalkOver is a must-have for anyone who loves to constantly hang out on Facebook. You can get the TalkOver app free from Google Play Store.
