apps available for a 2nd gen ipod touch

Hi, and firstly sorry If this is posted in the wrong section.

I have just been given an ipod touch 2nd gen, and we have been trying to get some apps for it, only to keep getting the message that it needs ios 5 or ios 4.3 etc, .....Is there anything that works with a 2nd gen ??
My daughter really wanted to be able to get facebook, instagram, instachat, plus a few games on it, is there any way of doing this?

thanks for reading and hopefully coming up with some help! x

You could jailbreak it and install older versions of those apps, but older version are of course, bad or don't even work.

There's also a pretty limited amount of games that still run on it.

Try this free search tool for finding compatible apps in the iTunes store:
iOSSearch: Find games and apps for 1st, 2nd generation iPod Touch, iPhone 3G, iOS 3.1.3 and 4.2.1

I did find a few Facebook-compatible clients (enter these in the search box):
Chatnow for Facebook
Friends Planet 2
Quickly for Facebook with Video Chat
