What is the difference between facebook.stackoverflow.com and stackoverflow.com aside from the subdomain and the other title?

Both pages are using the same questions and the same user profiles/information.

On facebook.stackoverflow.com I can also see my questions not related to facebook: How to handle dynamically loaded managed libraries in c#

When I set my favorite tags to some facebook tags and nothing else then is the only difference the title, the icon and the subdomain, or are there notable special features on facebook.stackoverflow.com?

Have you read the FAQ? It's basically a filtered view of SO focusing on Facebook-related tags only. –  Joachim Sauer Oct 17 '12 at 13:05
    
in the review queue, there are questions tagged facebook with comments saying "this is offtopic: ask on facebook.stackoverflow.com" - are those comments just wrong? –  Kate Gregory Oct 17 '12 at 13:12
    
afaik it is possible to ask facebook related questions on stackoverflow and it is also possible to ask facebook unrelated questions on facebook.stackoverflow –  Paedow Oct 17 '12 at 13:15

@KateGregory: yes, I'm pretty sure they are wrong. –  Joachim Sauer Oct 17 '12 at 13:16
    
You can read all about it in this blog post: blog.stackoverflow.com/2011/08/facebook-stackoverflow –  Shadow Wizard Oct 17 '12 at 13:20
    
@Paedow true, but on that "sub domain" there are added tweaks and tricks like taking your Facebook profile picture. –  Shadow Wizard Oct 17 '12 at 13:22
    
And the other side's blog - developers.facebook.com/blog/post/545 –  Lix Oct 17 '12 at 13:22

@Lix cool, wasn't aware that Stack Overflow replaced Facebook's forums which are now nothing more than spam container... :) –  Shadow Wizard Oct 17 '12 at 13:23
    
@ShaWizDowArd when i first registered on stackoverflow (approx. 2 months ago) my profile picture automatically synched with my facebook photo, so that´s not only on facebook.SO but the blog entry is very interesting and the entry from facebook itself complains it. –  Paedow Oct 17 '12 at 13:25
    
@Paedow yeah, that's because you were using your Facebook account. Anyway, there are benefits in that site see the blog post.. –  Shadow Wizard Oct 17 '12 at 13:26
    
ok, but really now there isn´t any difference xecept of the different settings and some visual stuff –  Paedow Oct 17 '12 at 15:03
    
possible duplicate of Facebook Stackoverflow? –  Pops Oct 17 '12 at 15:24

The FSO filter only displays questions containing one of the Facebook related tags.
