It's just a (crappy) website. An app is all that is needed at most. This is just as bad as Apple integrating Twitter in iOS and soon OS X. What use is integrating a website into an OS? An application is all that is needed for these social sites. Just like having an e-mail client or IM client.

Not something that is going to permanently drain the resources of a computer whose user has more to do in there life than follow people they would have blown off or forgotten about many years ago.

I guess they can call their "F" friends for free as long as they are your "F" friends.

On other related news: this "smartphone" is said to refuse calls made to or from any other "social network".

I would rather HTC team up with PornHub as appose to Facebook. As Velocity said, all is needed is an app.

I have an HTC phone with a small amount of internal space. I don't want Facebook, but HTC forbids me to uninstall it. However, it's set to automatically update Facebook where it gets to 10 megabytes. My phone has 256 total. So, 4% of my space is going to an app I absolutely do not want on my phone.

Root it, then freeze the app.

Just what people need, a way for Facebook to further spy in on their lives. Oops, we didn't mean to steal your phone book, pictures, and calendar. Those features were just supposed to "enhance the user experience". We'll add a privacy setting for it, default it to always on, and then won't tell you how to find it. That's enough to keep the DoJ off our backs, right?
