"Puffin for Facebook" is NOT associated with Facebook, Inc. It is developed by CloudMosa, Inc. -- the creator of the Puffin Web Browser.
Puffin for Facebook is a special edition of Puffin browser optimized for Facebook users. Its motto is "Better for Less" -- a better user experience for less data usage.
A better user experience is made possible by Puffin's wicked fast cloud rendering. Puffin Browser is faster than other browsers or even native apps on high-end phones. The performance advantage is especially noticeable on mainstream or low-end phones.
Less data usage is made possible by Puffin's wicked efficient data compression. Puffin Browser consumes 80-90% less data than other browsers or even native apps. The data savings are more significant on slower network connections, like in developing countries or during data roaming.
Puffin for Facebook removes the traditional web browser UI for a fully immersed Facebook experience. Puffin UI is kept as subtle and intuitive as possible. For example, monthly data savings are displayed when refreshing the news feed. To view an image in full quality, simply shake the mobile device.
To fully appreciate Puffin for Facebook, try it on an iPhone 4S using a 2G Edge network. Puffin for Facebook works remarkably well.

Ratings and Reviews
I have been struggling with the Facebook and Friendly apps on my iPad 2 running 7.1.1. Both their internal browsers crash constantly, and the apps are slow. What a relief Puffin is. It runs fast and of course the browser works well. One big issue: the browser back button returns you to the top of the news feed, not to where you came from. UPDATE:a workaround for the jumping. Hold your finger on the side of the newsfeed while typing into the reply box. Seems that keystrokes are being mapped incorrectly.
The Trade Off Is Worth It
I'm using on old iPhone 4s, so I maybe partial to this app because it is light weight and fast. What you shed by using this app is close to 500 megabytes of storage, 277 for the Messenger app, and around 200 for the Facebook app, which takes a load off the old A5 chipset. By no means is it perfect, and for those with faster, newer phones, 500 megs is not much. There are a few things that I'm not happy with, but I really didn't like Messenger. Puffin FB covers the FB experience AND lets me view and send private messages all in one, small app...
puffin Facebook style
this is much better than friendly, or lite for Facebook, those apps have ads in your face 24/7.
this app doesn't shove ads in your face nearly as much as those others do,and they do it CONSTANTLY. literally.
so far it hasn't force fed me one single ad.
it runs smoothly,too.
if you don't believe me, get it and see for yourself. what have you got to lose by trying it out?
