Hello. I just wanted to throw this out there and see what everyone thinks. The integration of facebook and twitter has been kinda bugging me. I'm not opposed to the integration, but more the way it was handled. People at Apple went onstage and announced their new partner Twitter/Facebook, an exclusive partner who they were allowing to be added directly into the OS. Should they have really done this, or should they have announced the possibility to integrate any social network of your choice (provided it has an app which supports this)? It just makes me think of a few years back when Myspace was king and people were writing everything in their live journals. I remember those two networks seemed huge. Then one day someone mentioned a site I had never heard of before called Facebook, suddenly Facebook was the next big thing and Myspace was all but forgotten. Today whenever I see a link to Myspace it makes the site look very old. Maybe Facebook will be different, maybe it will become such a big part of the web that it will never go away... But what if it is also just another fad? What if five years from now we all move on to some other service? Will Apple leave the Facebook integration in iOS and look like that outdated website? It just seems like a poor choice to add something directly into the OS, when it may only be a fad... a bit like getting a Pokemon tattoo, cool for a brief moment but an embarrassment years later. On the other hand, having an open integration feature which any social network can use is a much more useful tool. Some people may not ever use twitter but can't stay away from instagram... or perhaps one person who needs to update their live journal. Just something i was thinking about.
