iOS 6 brings deep Facebook integration
To start, a "Post to Facebook" button has been added to the notification center, right next to the Twitter button. Photos can be posted online quickly straight from the gallery, and location info can be shared without leaving the Maps app. Also, Facebook features have been added to the App Store and iTunes, so users can effortlessly "like" content, such as apps, games, songs, or movies. And if that is not enough, syncing your Facebook contacts has been added, so events and birthdays will appear in the user's calendar. APIs will be made available to developers so that they can take full advantage of the iOS 6 Facebook integration.
Sounds quite promising don't you think? Now feel free to check out a few screenshots of how Facebook integration in iOS 6 will look like.

OH Yes I can.. Apple is evil and tries to take credit for doing things others already have done. Like "Gee whiz we now have a sort of Facebook integration, that's still not quite as good or deep as WindowsPhone has since its inception or Android has now.. aren't we great and special.. " eh whatever.

Not really proper integration. Was hoping to see Facebook albums in the photos app... Maybe in 3012 when all other OS's are using holograms...

i know windows phone has this. i wounder if facebook integration in limited on other os because of the money microsoft through facebook way couple years ago like 300 million i think.

I doubt that because Andriod has all those features too, I can't understand why iOS is soo outdated when it comes to simple features...

This same 'apple facebook intergration' was a feature in sonys xperia handsets such as the arc well over a year ago....hmmmmmm
35. cdgoin (Posts: 367; Member since: 28 Jul 2010)
WindowsPhone has had it since its creation as well, and its deeper and better now than Apples will be.

What a funny joke...
IOS is the world's most advanced mobile OS!!! :)))
5. parvsingh05 (Posts: 98; Member since: 11 Jan 2012)
^^^ so according to u is android the most advanced mobile os ? now dont say yes, ul creat another joke :P

That in itself is a joke. You're a retard, I can just put a Facebook widget on my home screen in Android and it does the same thing.
18. QinEmpire (Posts: 145; Member since: 16 May 2012)
widget just mess up your phone with its messiness hahahah
37. iami67 (Posts: 318; Member since: 18 Oct 2011)
How do widgets mess up your phone with messiness if anything widgets clean up your phone. I guess you rather have hundreds of little non functioning blocks on your phone so you can fee like a 2 yr old playing with your boxes. One or two widgets thats actually tell you something and you can move around and customize how big or small and how many you want are better then a ton of little blocks sorry that just common sense even if you an apple fan. I wish apple would switch to having widgets but truth is there software and hardware can not handle it it would crash to much and eat up there battery

android obviously isnt lol, its the most crappy & laggy OS in the world.
32. aikonix (Posts: 59; Member since: 08 Apr 2012)
uhhhh, its a hella-of a lot better then iOS thats for damn sure
7. frydaexiii (Posts: 1231; Member since: 01 Dec 2011)
lol, I was able to do this on my Android ages ago.
Upload from Gallery?
I could do all these on my Wildfire running Eclair!
I don't remember Google using it as a new feature. I guess that's what Apple does best, take something that's hardly a feature and promote it as a main feature.
20. QinEmpire (Posts: 145; Member since: 16 May 2012)
yeah right, iOS already did that. Its now clearly Facebook my dear, Google clearly copied.
33. aikonix (Posts: 59; Member since: 08 Apr 2012)
QinEmpire, Taco50, you need to get the F away from PA you WELCHER...
You obviously have NO idea what you are saying when you say it.

it's okay but it's such an Apple-like update, this is something that should've come with iOS 4 or 5 but oh well. the App Store Integration is pretty nice.
10. Bluesky02 (Posts: 1439; Member since: 05 Dec 2011)
I hope all 3 platforms (iOS. WP, Andro) have deep Facebook integration so we can have more friends.
However, i'm sure Windows Phone 8 is going to have something better than this, since the Microsoft already had Facebook integrated in WP.

nice to see Apple join the party... better late than never I guess
12. RamyRamz69 (Posts: 390; Member since: 12 Dec 2011)
Facebook inside Xperia fans will relate to this.
What has been basically in my Xperia Arc(Heck even my X10) is revolutionary now...Wow, just wow.
21. QinEmpire (Posts: 145; Member since: 16 May 2012)
Yeah sure Xperia have facebook integration, sure it does.
What Google/Sony will do :
Get the Facebook app from Google play, pack it > ship it as bloatware.
Thats integration in android.
40. kumaneko110 (Posts: 6; Member since: 25 Aug 2012)
It's not bloatware if you actually use it genius
26. fervid (Posts: 173; Member since: 22 Nov 2011)
So, this is the new Facebook Phone...no wonder their stock is tanking. My Windows Phone which I hated had better integration with less Facebook.
29. jaoowolabi (Posts: 201; Member since: 07 Jun 2012)
