I really hope WP8 has better Facebook and Twitter integration.
For example (integrated):
- Twitter photos in the People feed open the browser but they don't for Facebook
- You can't view, get notified or responding to Twitter and Facebook direct messages
- Can't view or respond to Facebook events
- Twitter can't search hashtags
- Can't follow or unfollow people on Twitter
- Can't add or unfriend people on Facebook
- Can't delete comments or posts
I know some of these I can live without, but I would like to see some improvements.

I am aware of the API issue, but I would hope since Microsoft owns part of Facebook that they could come up with some type of agreement. The integration feels incomplete and I don't want to have to use 2 different apps to accomplish something.
Also all the 3rd party Twitter apps can do what I listed above.

Currently facebook messages are a disaster. Facebook chat and "send a message" don't always come to my windows phone messaging hub.
Also, there are a few basics that are missing that would make WP feel more premium:
- Liking photos
- Liking comments
- Pre-download feeds and notifications

I hope they improve the integration, i like how i can switch between fb and twitter just to read updates, but the ability to do anything is limited. I hope they get as many functions as possible in the integration, if they can.

I forgot to add a they need to add a much better conversion view for Twitter in the notification menu. Half the time I can't tell what someone is replying too unless I use a 3rd party app.

Facebook and Twitter both are nice social networking sites. According to me Facebook is better than twitter. I am using smart android phone which support so many social networking sites. I am daily access facebook using my smartphone.

PS I did have a Facebook account many years ago however I never really used it as I couldn't be bothered so I cancelled it and have never even considered opening a new account just for the sake of it.

Actually, I get my Facebook events in my Calendar on my WP7. No app needed. Can even respond to them, and heck, I can even write on the wall for that event. But yes, better integration would be nice. Being able to truly "Glance and Go" (another phrase WP7 early adopters may be familiar with) would be epic.Windows Phone Central Moderator "Fortune cookie said: 'Outlook not so good'.
