    Hey gang!!

    My daughter is seriously looking at the L1020 as an option when we upgrade in the next few weeks. She is the typical 20-something young lady... she posts tons to Facebook and uses it to keep track of friends more then texting/calling/ or any other way. She has a Samsung Captivate Glide right now, and I am a little worried about the Facebook intereface on WP. Basically, I use facebook like once a month, and I am not a photo nut. So, do any of you use the 1020 to upload to Facebook or other social networks often? What is the experince like? Is our WP8 app (I am still on WP7) better, or at least close in quality & features to Android?

    This is a deal killer for her, and I want her happy. Any experiences are appreciated.

    The Facebook app for wp8 is not that bad anymore, specially the beta version which is updated almost every week. Also the L1020 is a monster of a phone in terms of picture quality so she will not be ashamed of the pictures it will take.

    Facebook on WP8 is close enough to the Android version. Well,once you get past the fact that it doesn't have chat heads.

    Except the notification isn't stable, Facebook on WP8 almost works well like android app or ios app.
    About Facebook message, she can chat in the message app of Lumia. It s very fast and awesome.

    Toasts are perfect now in the beta.

    And in the beta, you can pin the messenger app out of Facebook

    Oops, but with my 1020, toast still work unstably. Maybe I will soft reset my one and reinstall the FB beta to test. Thanks for ur remind.

    She will be thrilled with this phone then. The battery is much better than the Captivate, and the recent improvements to Facebook make it that much better.

    Thanks gang. She loves taking photos, she is very "artsy". Her dream is to own her own coffee shop with an art gallery above to let other artist show their stuff. Her biggest complaint is never having a "nice" point and shoot when she needs it. She brought the L1020 up to me!!

    Any suggestions on settings or tricks to make her Facebook experience better will move one more L1020 off the shelves, I can feel it...

    The official facebook by microsoft is building fast and the experience is a whole lot better than it use to be. I use JDB Facebook which I like more than the official facebook. I also used the integrated facebook a whole lot when I am posting photos. I use to run android but I like the WP experience better. If your daughter is 20 something that means she is about my age and facebook and social apps are important and I do think the WP capture this equally if not better than Android.

    I didn't get a chance to read every comment, but you can upload your picture or video from your phone through the built-in Facebook. For that, you don't need the app.

    I actually prefer FB on WP compared to my Android. I hated the Android app so much I preferred looking at my FB account using the mobile browser. Now I check it regularly on the WP. IMHO any Nokia phone has a better camera than most Android handsets especially better than the Samsung Captivate. Cheers!

    Okay... that is the first time I have heard that. The L1020's camera is "too big"? As in physically, so it is uncomfortable to use/hold? Or do you think the camera is "too big" in some way to capture normal, everyday photos?

    I am sure the L925 is a good camera, but is that experience really better then the L1020, in your opinion?

    I am gosh darn curious now..... a sucker HAS to know.

    Given what you mentioned regarding your daughters photography tastes, the 1020 really is the way to go, the manual capabilities are impressive and will appeal to her creative nature. In terms if size, yes it's bigger but don't let that put you off at all, it really is not a concern I've heard anyone mention especially if they appreciate photography

    This is actually almost the same reason I bought the 1020. Even though I have my Z10 as a phone, I always complained that I never had a "good" camera with me when I'm out, as I love taking pictures (especially in NY, there are some nice shots). If it helps, I'm also a 20-something year old guy, so the age similarity might make our mindset similar as well. All I can say is that I never use my Z10 to take pictures anymore, the 1020 was exactly what I needed. And FB works well also!

    Oh also, I have the camera grip always attached to my 1020 since I use it more like a camera. But I find that it's not too bulky with it on, and it actually doubles as a stand. Plus the battery life with it is phenomenal :)

    I frequently post photos from my 920 to Facebook (did the same when I used my 810). I have the Facebook Beta app and it's pretty good. I have no issues with it whatsoever. I would say posting from WP8 is just as easy as doing so from my old iPhone 4. Actually, it's even better because it's faster and the photos are much better quality. So, snowmutt, your daughter shouldn't have any problem Facebooking on her future 1020.

    if you want FB for any other social stub, go with android.

    Yeah FB beta app is really good now, I used to use the web browser before the latest update but now its all in with the app. Also I think uploading through the built in sharing function is also easier and faster way to put the pictures on facebook. Btw make sure she gets the Beta app not just the regular one, because that one to me is ages behind due to unstable notifications etc.

    My daughter is 19 & hates the Facebook beta app for her windows phone (1020). If your daughter is a Facebook power user, DO NOT let her get a windows phone. My daughter complains about all the social apps and all their shortcomings everday, all day.

    So if you're daughter is heavily invested into Facebook and other social apps, point her in another direction. You don't want her to trash the OS to all of her friends, like my daughter does.

    I'm not saying anything that my kids and their friends wouldn't tell you. Anybody over 30 will think they know what they're talking about when it comes to this situation, but they don't. And sadly most don't realize it.

    This! The only way to go for the younger generation is android. It is the most social media friendly OS, currently.
