Windows 8 has over 20,000 apps in its Windows app store and since Windows 8 is only a month old, nothing much can be expected at this point but given the Microsoft as leader in software arena, the fever and not so credible apps points at one thing—the drift of loyal developers. At the same time, Microsoft doesn't have a Facebook app for the Surface.
