    I am sure you guys are well aware by now that Facebook sharing did not ship with the final version of Mountain Lion. Deciding to launch it with iOS 6 this fall ensures it coincides with the hype the event will generate. Remember, Facebook sharing will be one of iOS 6's main feature.

    So, being the adventurous lot that you are here's a, hopefully, full proof guide to enabling it on your new OS.

    You will need to get hold of this os_x_facebook_developer_preview.dmg

    As I'm sure it is not ideal to post a link to the file, I'll let you trawl the Internet for it.

    1. Download os_x_facebook_developer_preview.dmg
    2. Mount the .dmg file and open OS X Facebook Developer Preview.pkg screenshot20120731at231.png
    3. You will hen be presented with the installer screen. Continue and Authorise it when asked. screenshot20120731at231-1.png
    4. After the installation has finished, open System Preferences > Mail, Contacts & Calendars screenshot20120731at232.png
    5. Then choose Facebook from the list and enter your credentials. Voila! screenshot20120731at232-1.png
    You will now have Facebook sharing, it will now be available from Notification Center and other supported apps.

    This works, for now. You're welcome ;)
