Facebook integration on iOS 6
Facebook and social-networking integration
Apple's decision to integrate Facebook deeper into the platform puts it one step of the competition in this regard, allowing posting and 'Liking' from various parts of the OS, such as the Notification Centre or via Siri.
By comparison, on the Android platform there is no native Facebook integration — but it does come with Twitter pre-loaded out of the box. It also obviously comes with Google's own Google Plus (G+) social network by default. As a result, HTC has integrated Facebook features into its custom Sense UI, as have other phone makers.
The Windows Phone platform fares slightly better with the ability to post messages and read updates from Windows Live, Facebook and Twitter out of the box. However, it's still not a unified experience. For example, the part of the platform that lets you post to each network simultaneously will not let you view updates from the networks in the same place.
iOS 6 is invariably the best of this bunch for native social-networking features. Android brings Twitter and G+ to the party, and I, like many others, have little interest in G+. Similarly, Windows Phone does include more native options; but not being able to read Twitter stream updates in the same place as notifications is a little maddening.
