Is it just me or there is no Facebook integration on my MacBook Air 2011 with 10.8.2?

No options to set it in Preferences. :confused::confused:

Same boat -

I am a bit confused with game center, when I read the update info I understood that we could link facebook with it so that our facebook friends would show up in there and be able to send them requests from there.

I also don't have the Facebook synced with my contacts like it suggests, maybe I am completely missing this 'single sign on' for Facebook but I've looked through settings and I cannot find a place to enter my login info for facebook to OS X itself..

Personally I am having issues with the Game Center and facebook integration, My contacts aren't linked to Facebook, and I can't seem to add facebook friends to Game Center other then the two recommendations being displayed to me.

I could be missing something, as I have yet to see a 'single sign on' for facebook and stuff, maybe someone can shed some light on this?

Edit: Also, no notifications from Facebook in Notification Center.

You have to set up facebook/twitter under "Mail" in system preferences. Took a few minutes for me to find it as well.

Thanks! Guess that makes the most sense as a place to put the sign on info (had to think about it for a bit.....)

It's not letting me log in. It says "Unable to verify account name or password". I am 100% sure I have my password right but for username, I tried entering my full email, my full name or my personal facebook url name but nothing works.

What did you guys use for the User Name field?

Its the wildest thing, I tried adding Facebook several times only to be told by my Mac that the account already exists (although it wasn't showing up on the list). I went off to do other things, i.e., set up iPad 3 after upgrade to iOS 6, and now its on the list.:confused:

It wants your email address that you log into Facebook with.

For some reason, it just does not work. I log in with blahblah@gmail.com and I have typed that in numerous times, triple checked my password but it still says unable to verify. I can log out and log back in using the same user name and password on the browser but not in System Preferences.

Edit: Fixed it. I had to turn on apps on facebook. I had it turned off and apparently that disabled facebook integration.

Can you just sync people that are already in your contacts list (like update their phone numbers and emails), or does it automatically add all of your Facebook friends to your address book?

It adds them to a separate group in your contacts 'Facebook Contacts'

As I posted that, I got a notification that someone had commented on my post in a group. Trying to figure this out, because I didn't get a notification when someone commented on a post I had commented on...

Could anybody please explain to me what does the facebook contacts sync do?
i am kind of worried cause i've read somewhere about it screwing up the contacts list by adding hundreads of @facebook.com emails.
all i want is to get the contacts pictures from their facebook profile pictures. :)

DeckMan
Sep 20, 2012, 07:04 AM
Sorry to disappoint, but it does indeed add the @facebook.com address to everyone who didn't manually disable it on their profile.

Other than that, it's really neat - it adds Facebook as a new server, next to iCloud and Local, so it doesn't add every Facebook contact to iCloud. It only updates the existing iCloud contacts with phone numbers, email addresses etc. from Facebook, plus the profile picture, unless the contact already has a different picture in your Address Book. You can also manually connect iCloud contacts with Facebook contacts if the names differ.

Nope. But you can go through them manually and merge/copy those who do, then just disable Contacts syncing to get rid of the Facebook contacts.

Mine works for some notifications, but doesn't for incoming chat messages. I tried deleting the Facebook messenger app from my iPhone, then making sure that chat messages were off from the Facebook iPhone app (they were off for some reason).
At this point chat message notification started working, but then they stopped working again as soon as I installed and logged in to Facebook messenger again. I'm not sure if this was a coincidence or if Facebook Messenger is actually blocking message notifications

Unless it has something to do with other settings on Facebook o.O

Working now for me, I have no idea how but it is. Still no update on the sound option though but I haven't seen it update. I got a notification from a comment almost instantly too it's pretty quick.

Hi Guys - I updated all my devices to ios6 and my laptop to 10.8.2 and on my mobile devices I see a facebook events calendar but not on my desktop - how do I activate this?

Second this.

Anyone found a fix?

----------

With regards to Contacts:

On both 10.8.2 (and iOS6 if you're wondering), Sync with facebook - but to remove them from your contacts list load Contacts > View > Groups > Select "All iCloud". This will remove all annoying facebook contacts.

(on iOS6 - simply click Groups and uncheck Facebook)

There is no fix because you can't sync Facebook with Calendar in OS X. But if you go to Events in Facebook, then Export, you can subscribe to your Facebook calendar. Just make sure to make it local, or your events will be double on the iPhone.

Ahh I see. This does seem a little strange on Apple's behalf. They've introduced it for iOS6, but not for OS X. Therefore my iPhone now has all Facebook events synced to its iCal (which is really useful), but my Macbook's iCal doesn't! Apple?

I'm bang'n my head here. I can't believe how limited the fb integration is in regards to contacts. I simply want FB to update the info on my CURRENT icloud contacts. I don't want all my fb friends in my contacts. I'm sick of seeing so and so's bday tomorrow. FB is for old friends and acquaintances, so I don't care about their bday. It'd be a lot nicer to if the FB info that is grabbed by my iCloud contacts actually was imported and not just a "layer" that is taken away as soon as I turn of the FB contacts integration. ARG!

Same here. I'm not sure whether the lack of notifications is Apple's or Facebook's fault.
Still, I would love to see the options pane and customize this as was possible in the betas.

Yeah, frustrating, I think that's the word.

I'm sure this was one of FB's terms for the deal they made. Just like they gave everyone a ****ing @facebook email without asking, they problem gave apple the all or nothing option for contacts.

It is really annoying that some of my friends use fake names on facebook (as if they're twelve years old) and now when looking through my contacts I have to figure out who is who.

AAAAAHHHHHH!!! Rage. I f'n hate you FB. I have no way to merge the FB contacts w/ the iCloud contacts to keep the information fb provides w/o having to manually add it.

With the Developer facebook package, we were able to specify which kind of notifications we want from facebook (the setting panel was there, but not worked, I know). Now with 10.8.2, the option is not there... i don't know what kind of notifications should I get, and it's really bad that I can't specify which kind of notification I want. :confused:

I just clean installed 10.8.2 and I still have the same issue.

I can deal with only Contacts (for now hopefully) and no options to select which Facebook activities I want notifications for. But I have a bigger problem. I'm not getting any notifications at all. Finally, this morning, I got ONE. But no more since then. Worse yet, whenever I post something from Notification Center, it takes 15 minutes for it to show up on my profile. And then it seems to disappear randomly for a while. And even though Facebook tells me 3 people liked my post, only one like shows up when I take a closer look. This is all just so random!

Anybody else experiencing any of the same symptoms? Anybody found a fix?

ok, so i updated to 10.8.2, and i could not for the life of me, figure out how to sign in to Facebook, apple advertised it as "single facebook sign in"
If you cant figure out how to sign in, i found the easiest way, is to click the share button in safari and click Facebook. then it takes you to system preferences, and boom, you have post to facebook from NC and the other cool stuff.

sorry if im just overly stupid tonight but to mei couldnt figure out how to sign in.

Apple made a awful work here.

My facebook account has double protection, after put the password in a new device, I need to put a second code, generate by mobile app or receive by SMS.

Because of this, I'm unable to connect Facebook to ML. ML is not prepare to handle with this double check.

I'll not reduce my protection because Apple don't know how to properly integrate something.
