Facebook on WP7

Facebook on WP7

When Apple announced “Ping”, there was some talk around the water cooler (read: co-workers desk) that Ping was not too impressive, but that it’s possible that it’s just the beginning.  What if, for instance, Apple bought Facebook and integrated it into Ping.

Well, as I read this morning, it is Microsoft that is integrating with Facebook and owns part of the company.  They worked directly with Zuckerberg to rework the way FB will look and work on a mobile device.

Now don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love my iPhone and am satisfied with how facebook works on the iPhone.  But having the ability to take a picture and have that picture post to facebook instantly without having to open the app is a nice feature that will be available on WP7.  And I’m sure that this is just the beginning.  I can see many many apps that can be developed for WP7 that could make use of the new “integrated” Facebook.  Time will only tell if this is a “big step” in social networking, or just “big hype”.

Side Note: Watching the PDC10 event and realized that Steve Ballmer looks like a slightly thinner Tommy Boy.
