    For those of you with the iOS 6 beta, how does Facebook through Siri work? Can you do other things besides update your status? (like send a message to someone)

    I am aware of that. However, I was wondering specifically through Siri if the only way you can use Facebook is updating your status

    At the Keynote they showed Siri post a status update. The OP is wondering if you can also send messages.

    Was this done without the Facebook app running? I can't remember if so I can't replicate it?

    I told Siri: "Send a Facebook message to (user)"

    Siri replied: "I can't send Facebook posts to someone."

    All I can do is status updates from within the Facebook app using the mic button. I do like opening my apps now with Siri :)

    Also when you tell Siri to post a facebook status it doesn't read back until you state "review" then it'll read the post back.

    I said "Post 'hello' to Facebook" and she updated my status after asking me to confim, like if I was texting.

    I'm sure they'll add this functionality at some point since Siri does seem to recognize what you mean.

    Facebook & Twitter can both be updated using Siri. Pretty neat but I wouldn't say anything overly long as I'm sure mistakes will be made :D
