This is easy enough to believe for MySpace… that place is horrible, but Facebook I also have a better time using on the iPhone than the web. Facebook even gets mail so right that it (along with contacts) is better than Apple’s installed contacts. Why? They put faces along side of names and mail messages. This feature has been with us since 1.0 social networking apps. Mail clients never seemed to do that and when social networking apps did it the face icons were so huge that if you got any decent amount of mail your inbox would span for pages. Now that the social apps have to use small icons for small screens they have finally hit on the perfect combo of personality and space economy.
So I apologize in advance if I start sending you more messages on Facebook.
