Official Facebook app shows up in WP7 marketplace

In another sign that Microsoft is not going to be tied up by ideology when it comes to ensuring the success of Windows Phone 7, an official Facebook app by Microsoft has just shown up, despite the service being deeply integrated in the OS.

We have already seen complaints by some people that despite the integration they prefer a single dedicated app for all their (likely extensive and time consuming 😉 ) facebook browsing, and those people will hopefully now have one less reason not to buy a Windows Phone 7 device.
