Apple OS X Mountain Lion Goes Social
Tomorrow Apple is set to release the latest edition of its desktop operating system called OS X Mountain Lion. The emphasis this time around is very much on social and social sharing with Twitter and Facebook functionality featuring prominently.
As you navigate the Mountain Lion system you’ll find the Share button throughout, making it very simple to share, straight from the app you’re using. You can also:
- - Share photos, videos and other files with Mail, Messages and AirDrop.
- - Send links from Safari.
- - Post straight to Facebook, Twitter, Flickr or Vimeo.
It will also feature built-in Facebook support, you can share what’s up with you, straight from the app you’re in. Post photos or links. Add comments and locations. Just sign in once, and you’re all set up. OS X adds your Facebook friends and their profile photos to Contacts so you can find them fast. When friends update their information on Facebook, it’s automatically updated on your Mac. Your Facebook notifications show up in Notification Center. And you can even update your status straight from there.
OS X Mountain Lion is also designed for tweeting. Sign in once and you’re all set up — and you don’t have to leave the app you’re in. Tweet links and photos directly from Safari, iPhoto or Photo Booth with the new Tweet sheet. Add comments and locations. And when someone mentions you in a tweet or sends you a direct message, you’ll get a notification right then and there. You can tweet from Notification Center too.
