Facebook is adding new integration with OpenTable and greater Hashtag support to its iOS app.

The hashtag support was added to Facebook recently as part of a greater push to keep track of trending topics across the social network. The OpenTable integration is part of a broader partnership between the two companies that allows Facebook users to make restaurant reservations right from the Facebook app, using the 'Nearby Places' function as well as restaurant fan pages.

Facebook says its integration is far more seamless than with OpenTable's other partners, like Yelp and Google Maps, which require you to open a browser window to complete a booking. All reservations can be made without leaving the Facebook app. In fact, you don't even need to register with OpenTable to make a reservation.

Reservations will not generate posts on Facebook and reservations will not be sharable with friends.

Facebook is a free download for iPhone and iPad. [Direct Link]

New features and yet they can't get their basic functions to work properly or consistently.


I am a fan of Open Table though. I just don't like the whole Facebook integration with the world. I've deleted apps because they require to log in with FB and give no other options (USA Network app).

I couldn't agree more. I can't stand how Facebook integrates with everything. No, I don't want to share that I just ordered a pizza from a restaurant for delivery!
Then don't share it?

Seriously! I hate it when games do that! Infinity Blade for example doesn't let you use the clasmob unless you sign into FB. I rather use Gamecenter which is ironically already integrated into IB2 but just for achievements >:|

Anyways, can't we just use Siri to do an OpenTable reservation....?
