Facebook Integration is Coming to iOS 6?

Apple will bring Facebook integration to iOS 6 similar to how it integrated Twitter in iOS 5, reports TechCrunch.

As of right now, Facebook is a go in iOS "Sundance". One thing still being hammered out according to our sources is how sharing will work. Sharing is the other big part of the iOS/Twitter integration, and will be important for iOS/Facebook integration as well. But Facebook is significantly more complicated than Twitter in that there are all kinds of permissions for what you can post where and who can see what. And Open Graph adds another layer of complexity to all of this.

My guess is that Apple will keep things simple with at least the initial Facebook/iOS integration. Beyond authentication, there will probably be a Facebook button in the existing share screen which will allow you to share something to your Facebook Wall.

Earlier this year Apple CEO Tim Cook Cook revealed that he thought the two companies could collaborate more.

"Facebook: friend. We do a lot with them, our users use Facebook an enormous amount. ... I've always thought that the two companies could do more together." ... "

Apple is expected to unveil iOS 6 at WWDC 2012.

why does apple think FB integration is cool? this is like bundling Safari into iOS. You need an OS update to get the new version of the program. why not leave FB as a standalone? I hope FB does not pull out its stand alone app.

i think it's because the app alone sucks. maybe an integration would be better. it takes a STUPID amount of time to simply load a fucking biography.
