KDE "At last year's Akademy the vision of the Social Desktop was born and first presented to a larger audience. The concept behind the Social Desktop is to bring the power of online communities and group collaboration to desktop applications and the desktop shell itself. One of the strongest assets of the Free Software community is its worldwide community of contributors and users who belief in free software and who work hard to bring the software and solutions to the mainstream."

Yep and it faces the many well documented problems that web apps have and why people are looking to integrate social networking applications into desktop applets.

Besides, there's no reason you couldn't integrate this with Facebook.
