This morning, Philip Elmer-DeWitt wondered if the lack of Facebook integration in the release build of OS X Mountain Lion is the result of a new rift between Apple and Facebook ala the Ping situation in 2010.
Jim Dalrymple was quick to point out something Elmer-DeWitt clearly missed:
Apple has said since WWDC that Facebook would be integrated with Mountain Lion in an update to be released this Fall. On it’s Web site, Apple was very clear that the feature would be “Coming Soon.”
Still, I was a bit confused when the review copy of Mountain Lion that Apple gave out did include Facebook integration. And the functionality seemed to work just fine, but Apple told me as well that the plan was still to release it in the fall. Why?
