Page 2: Facebook Integration into iOS 5?

Here are some likely mocked up screenshots we received about possible Facebook integration into iOS 5.

Apple has provided Twitter integration in iOS 5 and included a framework to allow the company to extend it to account integrations. So, Facebook integration as a system-level feature would not be a stretch. These screens closely resemble those of Twitter's integration and are likely just mock-ups ("addresses" is spelled wrong):


Ultimately, Apple's decision to integrate Facebook into iOS seems to depend on negotiations between the two companies. Apple had closely integrated Facebook into its Ping social service, but the feature was pulled at the last second due to "onerous terms" that Apple could not agree to at the time. Since then, Facebook may be feeling more pressure with the early growth of Google's own social network, Google Plus.

If that screen shot is genuine, then someone at Apple can't spell "addresses" and I find that a little hard to believe!

Fake!

Definitely fake, but I would much prefer Facebook integration over Twitter integration.

I know it would be an "optional" install but you can bet it will nag and nag and nag if you don't install it.

It doesn't if you haven't logged into the Twitter one so why would it for Facebook? Apple doesn't operate that way.

I really hope this does not happen. I already uninstalled the Facebook app because it uploaded my Address Book into Facebook's servers without even notifying me.

I don't need spyware to be integrated into the OS.


It would be an optional install....

Apparently clicking "Update Status" causes the Wifi logo to slide over towards the middle of the screen. :rolleyes:

So much Facebook hatred! I don't see it. Especially the people dropping Facebook for Google+, which is just Facebook with less features. :rolleyes:

Why is everyone getting their knickers in a twist.

Twitter is currently optional and does not hassle you if you do not install it so why would this be different?[COLOR="#808080"]
