Facebook/Twitter support expanded on Apple online store

Apple has finished work on placing both Facebook and Twitter links across their Apple online store. The new options allow users to share Apple product information and pricing on the social networking sites via a click of a button.

The company first began the roll out last month when the company made the options available on both the Mac Pro and the iPod classic pages. As of today, the company now allows users to post links to all Apple products alongside hardware and software from third parties.

The new feature allows consumers to quickly share links to the product they are looking at with their friends. The feature is similar to the support Apple introduced to the iTunes store, with a little downwards arrow attached to the selection button. When clicked, new "Share on Facebook" and "Share on Twitter" links appear.

This isn’t the first social networking move by the Cupertino company as they have chosen to add system-wide Twitter integration into iOS 5 allowing users to quickly post pictures and links to their profile. iOS 5 is currently in beta and due to be released within the next couple of months.

Wow slow news day.

News just in - Neowin has tweaked there site design. We have a 4 page in-depth analysis.


+1. I fail to see why this would be news to ANYBODY... How many sites DON'T allow you to share via Facebook, Twitter, and a dozen other networks... This would be "news" for no other company.

Even more so if it was on MS's website.

Oh dear. Apple is junkifying it's pages in hopes of becoming cool. No-one wants facebook posts of 8gb RAM upgrades on a mac for an incalculable price. It's bad enough having this **** in iTunes but Apple hardware? No, thanks.
