    i use the built in people hub to keep up with whats new on Facebook. you can even select to only show Facebook or twitter or both at the same time. you can also comment and like things from there. for notifications i use the built in Me hub. you can also comment and like that from hub also. i find those 2 things allow me to do enough as far as Facebook goes.

    It would be good if the people hub or the official FB app had the "tagging" option (@) in comment.

    The people hub is great, but if somebody has a privacy setting set up, their post won't appear on the people hub, if you download the microsoft facebook app it will.

    also:
    touch.facebook.com is a pretty good site for your windowsphone.

    Whats the difference between the m.facebook.com site and the touch.facebook.com site?

    They used to be different. Now there is no difference.

    If you just recently added her then it takes a while for the phone to re-sync contacts with facebook, up to 24 hours of more. If you must sync right away you can do it manually by going into People > Settings > Scroll down to "accounts" > long press Facebook and sync

    I honestly see nothing wrong with the Facebook app from Microsoft. It's good enough for all of my FB needs. I also really like the People Hub.

    Messaging (with enabled facebook chat), people hub with my own and my gf profile pinned to start ... and I have also pinned mobile and desktop facebook by IE to start (by separate tiles for each of them, even it is pretty easy to switch from mobile facebook to desktop facebook - click 3 lines on the top left and choose the bottom one "Desktop site" ) ... I am not using any fb apps any longer ...

    Exactly. WP FB integration is almost 100% complete if only you could access your FB inbox from WP itself. It's the only missing feature I've encountered. Everything else is there including tagging photos. Once they implement inbox access (even in the form of messaging threads) I can finally uninstall the official FB app and have a seamless experience from WP/FB.

    I use the people hub on my phone, but also have the Microsoft app installed. I find that the Microsoft app will not show me comments under photos, but the people hub will. Also if my phone locks with the Facebook app open, when I unlock the phone I have to go back to the start screen then back into the app to resume where I left off.

    In the FB app, to see comments on pictures, hit the comment button, then scroll down...

    I have also tried many Facebook apps and I dislike them all. If you compare m.facebook.com to all those apps Touch, Pro, etc apps, the website always works better. In all those apps the like and comment buttons are below each other taking up space while on the mobile site they are next to each other.

    The People hub on the other hand shows posts from people who I have set to not show on my stream. It also shows people playing games, all of those stupid messages I've blocked. The Microsoft Facebook app is ok, but not very user friendly.

    I prefer the FB app compared to the People Hub/Me tile. I just like the layout and it gives you a bit more to do if you're looking for more than status update/commenting.

    However, one thing I did notice is that I do have a picture with over 150 comments (don't ask). The FB app will only go to a 100, where as the People Hub will display them all.

    The one thing I noticed that's a bit frustrating is you can't like a photo thru the Me Hub, only thru the People or Photo Hub if you tap the "flag" to the right of the post, unless I'm missing something. Otherwise I barely use the actual app and stick with the baked in goodness of the Hubs.

    I know that it's not very helpful, but unfortunately it's the sad truth. Rather than letting him wonder whether he is doing something wrong or putting his hope in alternatives that are as or more crappy, I'd rather be upfront about it and save him the trouble and frustrations that this topic brings. It simply sucks on WP and nobody is doing anything about it. It's actually one of the main reasons why I'm waiting for a Nexus 4 now. Microsoft is ignoring too many issues and it will (and it should) bite them in the *** by alienating potential new but also loyal old users.

    Anyone know of any FB apps that support comment tagging with the @ key? The Android and iOS apps seem to have it.

    The mobile site is the best, IMO. I like the layout and feel of the official FB app, but three things made me want to pull my hair out:
    • Any new post makes the news feed bump back up to the top. I would loose my place if I was reading another post when this happens. GRRR!
    • The effing game/apps posts cannot be removed like the main web site. The majority of the post were stupid bejeweled/Mafia Wars/Farmville acheivements. I couldn't find a way to filter that crap out.
    • Some posts from friends on the website were not displaying on the phone app.
