    I don't use the FB App. I use just the baked in functionality in the OS. I've found no need for further functionality on my phone. But then again, I'm odd. :)

    The baked-in "functionality" in the OS is incomplete. Otherwise there wouldn't be a need for the app (which is also incomplete, btw).

    The FB app is ok...i tend to use the people integration more but I'm trying to spend more time off FB. It has become a demon for many people and consumes to much of people's lives. We need to get out and enjoy the sunshine and the beauty of nature.

    Unless the functionality that is included in the OS is as much as MS was intending to include in the first place.

    A lot of the thinking behind the WP7 ethos seems to be along the lines of letting people do the everyday stuff quicker and easier than they can do on other platforms. So things like check-ins, status updates, picture posting and checking on friend's updates may be as much as MS ever intended to bake into the OS.

    If that is the case then I can certainly see a need for a better FB app. But there is always the chance that many people won't look to do a whole lot more on their phones socially than just the basics.

    There is also the chance - however small - that, while Facebook may still huge now, it's popularity may take a nose-dive at some point in the future (anyone remember Myspace?)

    If MS go to great lengths to build large parts of the OS around FB, it risks turning into a "Facebook phone". If something happened that meant people used FB less and less then you could end up with a fair amount of the phone's functionality becoming useless.

    the baked in functionality does everything I need it to do, so not incomplete at all.

    I find it funny that when a member says something isn't working right/incomplete Other members gives them some speech on how MS intended the OS to work. Will said members please post the email/documents that MS sent you explaining how they intended the OS to work. We're honored to have MS WP7 designers with inside information here. *rolleyes*

    Enough of that, MS has already let it be know that they know that some features are missing and that the reasoning is that FB doesn't allow the built in app to be a first party app, it's a third party app, so features are limited. The reason why the official app is sucks, well that's beyond me.

    Who has done that? And where? I think all anyone has done here is give their own opinions on various aspects of the OS's social networking functionality, and offered their own theories on the way things are. In fact, it was another user who boldy claimed that the built-in functionality was incomplete. I said that it *may* be all MS was intending to include.

    What's the point of this kind of comment? And what's with the sarcasm? Like I said, all anyone on here ever does is post their own opinions on things.

    Ok so, just like you did, should I ask you to post the email/documents to you from MS confirming that?


    Jeez, I posted the other day about how I thought this forum was so good because it let people freely post their own opinions. That's what I thought at the time, at least.

    But the time you posted this, you could have done a google/bing search and found MS OFFICIAL statement on this. It was covered by WPC. You're welcome.

    On android I saw myself going into the Android app a lot since it isn't baked into the OS, even with HTC Android phones with sense that has some extent of if ... I still used the Android App more. With WP7 I just go into the Peoples Hub to check up on FB and twitter. I have the FB app installed but hardly if ever go in it only if something didn't load right.

    I never had issues with Android but then again I never had cheap low end phone. I always had high end ones. That's the thing with android people who give it a bad name have a POS phone, whether its software/hardware related. I had a Rezound and i never had an issue mostly since it was hardware wise top of the line, while people i know are walking around with LG phones from MetroPCS that are slow as **** and all they do is complain about how ****ty android is. But thats a who different topic

    The baked in functionality is only half-baked..you need to go to the FB site to see anything more than a like and a status update. Though, its easier to check a status update than it is to pull up the dial pad. I don't like the mega-FB integration throughout the phone...rather keep it all separate in a tidy little app. (but there isn't one)..

    What are you talking about? I don't have any trouble whatsoever pulling up the dial pad, not even my parents do when I let them use my phone. You aren't being forced to use the Facebook integration you can keep it separate if you like.

    news feed-->notifications-->photos-->more photos-->profile+friends+messages+events.
    That's 5 pages. Plus an extra click on friends to pull up the list.
    don't know where you're getting 5 from, only took me 2 to get to friends.

    You do know don't you that you can also go Newsfeed --> Profile + Friends + Messages + Events if you swipe Left to Right? :-)

    you can swipe left to right anywhere within the OS. Doesn't mean that its clunky or unorganized whatsoever just means that you're a bit misinformed.
