Facebook Connect on the iPhone this fall


There’s some big Facebook developers meeting going on right now (TechCrunch is all over it, by the way), but while most of it doesn’t really concern CrunchGear per se, the company did announce that Facebook Connect will be coming to the iPhone this fall. Facebook Connect lets developers tap into Facebook from within their own applications. For example, a Twitter program that, when you choose to get info from someone, takes you to their Facebook profile. I think “neat” is just the word to describe that: not too impressive, not too boring, just sorta in the middle there.

I’ll leave it to our resident iPhone owners Peter and John to pontificate on how big a deal this is for iPhone users generally.
