Whether you like Facebook or hate Facebook there is no denying that it’s the largest social networking site on the planet. However, Apple hasn’t done a lot to integrate Facebook support into the Mac OS or iOS as they have with Twitter. If you look at iOS 5 you’ll see Twitter support throughout. Also if you look at the upcoming Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, you’ll also see native support for Twitter in the OS. Sure I’m a Twitter user and appreciate having Twitter integrated in the OS itself, but I’m also a Facebook user and would love to see the same level of integration in the OS that Twitter is getting.
More people post photos to Facebook daily than any other place and while Apple DOES have direct Facebook posting in iPhoto, this level of built-in support hasn’t made it to iOS or anywhere else for that matter. Status updates and sharing links would also be appreciated. I’m not sure if there is a technical limitation or one of a business nature, but I just find it surprising that Apple would favor Twitter over Facebook considering the disparate size differences between the two networks.
