    This is old news, but I didn't know so few people knew about it
    People knew, but a small problem had arisen............ We didn't know if there would be a mobile version. Most articles explicitly stated that FB were working on a universal app for PC. Another common theory was that it would be released for PC and the current two apps developed by MS would remain for mobile

    So now we have proof

    Why did assume that it will lose the integration?
    Because it is developed by a 3rd party and the OS doesn't allow many apps to interact directly, however this is changing somewhat with w10 lol

    No, actually it being developed by a 3rd party doesn't conclude that, Twitter integrates with the people hub and is made by Twitter, so it's not a rule. If this required a special access I am sure Microsoft would allow it! But I think the API for integration is accessible by developers (not sure though)

    The people hub is pretty much dead. I just want it to sync contact info over I could care less about syncing feeds to the people hub anymore I don't even use it for that anymore

    I still use the people hub daily, and I hate the way the new Twitter app has stopped integration with the people hub. I'm hoping the FB app will continue to integrate with it.

    I am sure it will return in a future update. This app has been written again from scratch, so they ought to add features to it soon. :)

    This thread is making me miss the good ol' days when all my messages were in one place and I didn't have to worry if someone had texted me or used Facebook, etc. Man it sucks that they took that away. Then again, other things have come a long way since 8.0.

    I've never understood the complaints about the Microsoft app. while it lagged behind in features I personally never had the experience that many people. Have said they had.
    Because they like to complain...period. There are issues with our current version, but it's useable.

    It's not usable. It's slow, it freezes it constantly crashes , its outdated missing features, composing statuses and posting pictures not a reliable app at all

    Why do we like to kid ourselves and act like it's all green? The app lacks some basic features, and performance-wise it's not that great either.

    I don't understand why WindowsCentral and MSPowerUser didn't report this. I tipped both of them but it feels like sometimes they are ordered to keep somethings hidden, especially if they involve them in the Closed Beta!

    Not true, if you think about it the new hub is the Notifications Panel: a list of actionable notification containing rich messages or other things all in the same place. The point is the apps should implement those actionable notifications, when this comes true you will have all the messages from all your contacts from all your apps on a single page from which you can answer or dismiss them. It's only taking a bit too much to come together but if you think about it it's the same exact thing you are missing from the old people hub but much more powerful.

    Seems like you haven't used WP 7.5.
    The concept of hubs is much more than that. It is bigger than just the Me Hub, and many users saw it has a HUGE potential. It included:
    - A Messaging hub: SMS + Facebook + Windows Live chatting, all in one place. It could have grown to include an API for other 3rd party developers, to include theirselves in the Messaging app. Imagine a single place for all of your texting needs: Whatsapp, Facebook, Twitter, Skype, Telegram, etc.
    - A Me Hub: All things about you, including SOME notifications from Facebook and Twitter, your most recent status on any social service at the time, a way to post to all of them at once. It could have grown for more, to include more things about the user on other social services ( an API to give developers access to other services to link to it)
    - A Games Hub: All of your games list, scores, Xbox integrated, achievements, avatar, etc. It was way easier to track your games at the time, keep track of friends, etc.
    - People Hub: It was truly magnificent to track all about your contacts. Now it basically leads you to the app, which is not bad, but not as fast as it was either!
    - Pictures Hub: It included your gallery (in a very great design), with other photos from other social services (which also could have been great if opened to developers to bake it there as well).

    You see, this was a great solution to a big problem: being organized and effective while being unique as an OS.

    Anyhow, its your personal preference to like it or not, for me and many others, this was one of the things that drought us to Windows Phone in the first place!

    Exactly, I was comparing to 8.0 and 8.1, and the new action center takes care of most of the needs and much more. Not saying it's the same thing, just an evolution with a lot of cool features and much more mantainable than the old solution.
