When Apple took the wraps off OS X Mountain Lion at WWDC yesterday, one of the features they did not mention was just like iOS 6, the upcoming OS X upgrade will also be seeing Facebook integration as well. Why didn’t they mention this, you ask? After all Facebook integration with iOS 6 is a pretty big deal, and we’re sure that there are many OS X users out there who would love to see Facebook integration for their computers as well! As it turns out, while Facebook integration will be part of Mountain Lion, it will not be shipping with the final release of the OS which is expected to be in July.
Instead it seems that Facebook integration with OS X Mountain Lion will only be arriving in the Fall, which is coincidentally when iOS 6 will be rolling out presumably along with the next-gen iPhone as well. However Facebook integration was spotted in the Mountain Lion Developer Preview 4 and according to reports, appears to be functioning just fine. The folks at 9to5 Mac are chalking this up to a possible agreement with Facebook that will only “allow” the integration to be launched in the Fall. Either way this is another feature that Mountain Lion users can look forward to. So, anyone planning on updating OS X 10.7 to 10.8?
