Ready your social slingshots; Angry Birds is now live on Facebook

It’s been a long time coming, but after nearly a year of waiting, Rovio has finally delivered on their promise. As of right now, Facebook gamers can now join the ranks of their iOS/Google+/PC/Mac/Chrome brethren and discover the deep satisfaction that can only be found in flinging a bird into a wooden house filled with pigs.

While the game is largely the same as every other version that’s come before, there are a few new elements to appear here on Facebook. Most of this is the sort of new content you’d expect in a Facebook game, like daily rewards for logging in and power-ups that you can purchase with real money. But other elements like a brand new Facebook-exclusive campaign are a surprisingly welcome treat.

As well, it should probably be noted that all of these new tweaks are conspicuously absent from the similarly social Google+ version.
