    Not for me. My contacts are messed up already, what with the fund and games of several iOS devices, 2 Macs and iCloud playing silly buggers.

    I installed mine but didn't enable Contacts. I do like the Sharing option added in Safari and I can post directly from the Notification Center.

    I've got the dev preview running on the MBA, but its missing major functionality at this point, including any form of notifications, so its staying off the primary machine until its useful.

    I do. Cause you gave that link in another post

    ----------

    You can turn the contact option off. :)

    What do you mean, "semi- enable it"?

    What's more to come then?

    True...

    Wonder how they're gonna do that, since with other notifications you need to have the app's open

    No no. I wonder how NC will know when there are messages or not.
    And if that's possible without an APP running, why can't Twitter work in such a way?

    I don't have a Facebook account, so I have no intention of using the feature.
    Have to say I'm not keen on the way Apple is implementing third-party account support into OS X. It should be an optional module you can choose to install or disable, not a core OS feature.

    If anyone has ever used Adobe's Lightroom, it should be something like that where there are built in publishing services for popular sites (Flickr etc.) but they can be disabled and disappear from the list when you do so, and people can create their own plugins if their sites aren't on the list.

    It is optional.

    If you don't log in, it's not gonna bother you in any way

    Being there bothers me. I am not a fan of how Facebook already tracks your every movement on the web.

    I trust that Apple have a reasonable implementation in the OS that doesn't do anything like this, but I do not want anything Facebook related on my system.

    Facebook can't even get push working to their iDevice apps yet. They will need to upgrade their push infrastructure before Facebook on the mac will be of much use. In short facebook servers can't handle the load, adding more to it isn't going to work unless they do something about it.

    This is the reason why I believe it was planned for 10.8.1 fall release.
