“But hurry, this limited-time offer will expire on February 16 — three days that your friends can spend getting ahead of you in the rankings!” The statement added, with the Angry Birds Facebook app to be similar as the original mobile version launched in 2009 via iPhone.

“This launch is just the beginning for Angry Birds on Facebook,” Petri Jarvilehto, SVP of Game Publishing at Rovio, was quoted at Rovio.com, noting the addition of social components, brand new power-ups, and exclusive new levels.

“We have great new features and gameplay lined up for the fans in the upcoming weeks. Angry Birds on Facebook will offer a unique experience for our fans, and we’re really excited to finally be on the platform.” Jarvilehto added.

Apparently, players can now compete with their Facebook friends for gold, silver, and bronze crowns in any level; as well as share their scores with them via News Feeds and sent them “mystery gifts” of power-ups.

Among the notable Angry Birds Facebook app power-ups are “sling scope” (for better targeting), “king sling” (for more power and velocity), “super seeds” (to supersize your bird, turning it into a “pig popping giant”), and “birdquake” (to shake the battlefield and bring down pigs’ defenses).
