    Does Windows Phone 8.1 not have the "ME" tile? None of the screenshots or videos I have seen till now have the "ME" tile.

    Since Facebook and Twitter are now separate apps, wonder what the ME tile would show anyways.

    The me tile is still there in the emulator at least. And from the BUILD sessions that I've watched, I'm fairly confident it'll be there when it's released. It allows posting to fb and twitter using the share contract found in windows 8.1

    If it's there in the emulator, it would be there on the phone too, I think. What does it show on the emulator when you click on it? Does it show any notifications?

    Is there any use of having it pinned to the Start screen anymore? Currently it shows me my Facebook notifications

    I can't check right now since I'm at work. But from my memory, it looks basically identical to today. Though you can only post to one social network at a time (due to how the share contract works) and you have to pin it from the people hub. It's not pinned by default. I'll have to see about notifications, I didn't link my fb or twitter when I was playing with it.

    It actually was told somewhere. There will be one. Except that when posting updates to social networks, it gives you quick access to the apps post screen (like fb, or twitter ) and you can select what app you want to use for quick access. So check inn for foursquare, and statuses for fb or twitter :)

    Really sad about it only letting you post to either Facebook or twitter at a time, posting to both simultaneously is one of the most used features on my phone right now, hopefully they can bring that function back

    While I liked the convenience, it won't like come back. The reason it was possible previously was because Microsoft was handling the communication with the social media. Now, with the share contract, the OS is only passing the text that you entered to the app and then the app handles the posting and processing. Thus means the app needs to be open and only one can be at a time. It is theoretically possible to write an app to hook into this that provides multiple social networks but that would require effort from third party app devs.

    Lol you my friend are an honest person!!! :P Hahah most of the people registering as dev's arent dev's... So you can see this dev preview as a backdoor into a world that isn't perfect yet.. If a lot of people get the update MS will have more feedback on what is wrong or what can be better.. This gets them ready for the global release

    Just double checked the emulator, there's no notification pivot. I also can't seem to add Facebook as an integrated account. But twitter is there. Everything Facebook seems to be hooked in from the app for 8.1. Weird that twitter isn't the same case

    In that case, the ME tile is almost useless to me. Well :-(

    Thanks all for the screenshots. The only reason I used the "ME" tile was to receive Facebook/Twitter notifications. I don't post updates that often. Well, 2 more days to go :-)
