In Windows Phone 7's menu, Facebook is pinned and it shows how many notifications or messages you have – without Facebook being opened.

How can I do the same in Windows 8?

I pinned it to the menu, but it's just a blue square.

You need to wait for someone to write a Facebook Metro application. If you have some HTML / CSS / JS knowledge or C# + XML knowledge it could be possible to do this yourself. – Tom Wijsman Apr 3 '12 at 8:27
Have you tried FlipToast? It's in the Store – Arvanitis Christos Jul 4 '12 at 16:40
