    If you enjoy using some Facebook features in apps like OneDrive, People and others in Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone, it looks like they won't be available anymore. A new support page shows that, because of a chance in the Graph API, Facebook Connect features are no longer available for those apps, along with other services from Microsoft.

    Would they care? Does anyone know WHY they are doing this? Surely not on iphones and androids.

    For me this is one of the best reasons for Windows phone. Everything in one place. Automatically updated. There is no wonder why this is occurring as it filtered content out of the Facebook advertising storm and allowed posts while never actually using Facebook. A compromise position would allow updates to contacts and continued downloads but require the use of Facebook to make a post.
    Facebook is on my A list of stocks as they are making some great moves but this isn't one of them. I expect that the release of 10 will significantly increase the number of phones with Windows. That may be what they are after, a larger user base.
