    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:

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

    Did you sign into your FaceBook in System Preferences->Mail, Contacts, & Calendars?

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

    Facebook integration? How?

    I clicked on settings, mail, and tried to add Facebook to the list. iClould, Gmail, and Twitter are there. When I try to add Facebook it says the account already exits. What do I do?

    Anyone not able to get rid of the sounds option on the Notification settings of Facebook?

    On Messages it's a simple checkbox but nothing for Facebook, also I'm not getting notifications either.

    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.

    Facebook notifications are not working here. I tried to stop them and restart them. Nothing.
