In addition to the launch of iOS 6 today, Apple also rolled out an update for its Mountain Lion OS, which adds Facebook integration, among other things.
With Mac OS X 10.8.2, Facebook is now baked into Apple's OS. Apple announced plans to add Facebook to Mountain Lion earlier this year, but when it launched in late July, only Twitter integration was live. At the time, Apple said Facebook would be added in a later update.
That update rolled out today, and it adds several Facebook-related options, including: single sign-on for Facebook, a Facebook option when sharing links and photos, the ability to see Facebook friends' contact information and profile pictures within Contacts, and Facebook alerts within Apple's Notification Center.
Within Game Center, meanwhile, players can share scores to Facebook, Twitter, Mail, or Messages. Facebook friends are also now included in Game Center friend recommendations, and the Facebook "Like" button is available on games. You can also challenge Facebook friends to beat your high scores.
