iPhonebook? iFacePhone? Facebook integrates with iPhone iOS

How many of you still use an iPhone like it’s the greatest product ever invented? I’m liking the new Galaxy phones as well as Windows phone with the neat stuff coming out. However if I stay with the Apple brand and grab an iPhone 5, maybe I can look forward to this?

After Apple CEO Tim Cook dropped a major, yet subtle hint last week, it seems Facebook integration is indeed coming to the iPhone, according to the latest Web reports. Facebook will become fully immersed within iOS as soon as its next update, which could and in all likeliness will be revealed next week at Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference.

The integration will be similar to that of Twitter’s, which came last year with iOS 5, and will allow users to post articles on the Web to Facebook the same way they can tweet them now.

According to Larry Page, Google’s chief executive, Google+ has become a robust competitor in the social networking space, with 90 million users registering since its June launch. However that number is very misleading.

While I find Google+ to be somewhat easy (and at times, fun) to use, it feels very empty. Some of that is any lack of Twitter or other auto-posting integration. I can post to Facebook via text message (which Google Plus also allows now), web browser toolbar, or hundreds of third-party applications. My blog can auto-post to Facebook when I make new posts with API configuration. Google allows none of that.
