    Which one do you prefer to browse Facebook on? As I'm indecisive. The Facebook app has great lockscreen functionality, but the people app already has fb built in...

    I use a mixture. I use the Me tile for all of my notifications and to post a status for myself and the Group tile for my family's Facebook statuses. But I rarely use the people hub to browse the newsfeed. I usually use the Facebook app for that.

    That's what I was thinking about doing. Just wasn't sure if it was redundant and pointless having two apps for Facebook.

    I do the same, and I don't think it's redundant at all. It's actually quite nice to check in or post a quick update from the me tile. Plus, you can post that check in or status to multiple sites (FB, Twitter, etc) very quickly and easily. I still use the Facebook app, and whatever my twitter client of the minute is, to read timelines, etc.

    Honestly, I think (hope?) that's what Microsoft had in mind with the people hub and me tile. Quick status updates, maybe reading the timeline of a pared down group of people, etc. Any power use is impossible without a dedicated app.

    I just set a live tile directly to the Facebook mobile site. I seem to not see everything from built in People app.

    Better than only one photo. I prefer the collage-like effect on my lockscreen. That's why I have Lock Buster as well. In general, if an app has WP8 functionality, I tend to try it out and use it for a little bit.
