Just like calling and leaving a voicemail in the 90's was a great way to let your friends know you were thinking of them, social networking is now the norm to let your friends know you're creepily stalking them on the internet. And what better way to keep in touch with all of your pals then with a heaping of free Mac apps to constantly remind you that yes, you have friends out there that are worth tracking on a minute-by-minute basis. Or, maybe you're crazy obsessed with a pundit or famous YouTube star (My Drunk Kitchen, anyone?). Keep tabs on them with these free apps.

We can chat with them on our iOS devices and still manage to grab our Facebook friends and our Gmail folks. These may not be the one app to bind them but they come pretty close when you rock the multi-client instant messaging apps.
On Monday, we reported that TechCrunch had revealed the secret behind Facebook’s missing iPad app -- it was hidden within the existing iPhone app. As impatient users rushed to tweak the app to try it out, Facebook decided to be party poopers and close the doors. But as always, jailbreak users have all the fun.
It’s like a mystery right out of The Da Vinci Code: Where is Facebook’s iPad app? Despite the company’s continued denials, leaks insist that the company is developing one -- and as it turns out, it was right under our noses the whole time.
Unfortunately, video gaming has a stigma attached to it in the eyes of popular culture. They see us as lazy nerds who sit around gaming all day instead of serving humanity.
