    Facebook is adding new integration with OpenTable and greater Hashtag support to its iOS app.

    The hashtag support was added to Facebook recently as part of a greater push to keep track of trending topics across the social network. The OpenTable integration is part of a broader partnership between the two companies that allows Facebook users to make restaurant reservations right from the Facebook app, using the 'Nearby Places' function as well as restaurant fan pages.
    Reservations will not generate posts on Facebook and reservations will not be sharable with friends.

    Facebook is a free download for iPhone and iPad. [Direct Link]

    New features and yet they can't get their basic functions to work properly or consistently.

    I am a fan of Open Table though. I just don't like the whole Facebook integration with the world. I've deleted apps because they require to log in with FB and give no other options (USA Network app).

    I couldn't agree more. I can't stand how Facebook integrates with everything. No, I don't want to share that I just ordered a pizza from a restaurant for delivery!

    Seriously! I hate it when games do that! Infinity Blade for example doesn't let you use the clasmob unless you sign into FB. I rather use Gamecenter which is ironically already integrated into IB2 but just for achievements >:|

    Anyways, can't we just use Siri to do an OpenTable reservation....?

    I know it's not 100% relevant, but all I want is the new Newsfeed design!

    Another update. And notifications still don't work properly. I guess they will continue to blame Apple and iOS 6. Which I know it isn't the os, since they don't work properly in iOS 7 either. Very frustrating...

    At least not until the next update. :p

    For now your FB "friends" will have to figure out what restaurants you go to by the ads they see in your newsfeed.

    Complain to the app maker, not Facebook. It's not Facebook putting Facebook sign-in into others apps. It's the app maker choosing to have Facebook integration.

    Facebook login makes it much easier for developers to get people to create accounts, get user information and get it in a standardized way. It increases signups and makes it easier for the users to sign in. There are benefits to it even if it does annoy some.
