Just as Apple added Facebook support to all of Mountain Lion’s built-in apps, iPhoto also saw an upgrade that allows users to do more with their shots on the popular social network.
Of course, iPhoto has included Facebook support for several years now, first allowing you to simply upload shots using an add-on, and later offering built-in Facebook uploads, as well as the ability to view comments and likes from your friends. In the latest update, you also have the ability to add comments to the photos yourself. The interface has changed very little from the way it worked before, but you now have the ability to click below the current comments on your photo to add your own. The system isn’t as slick or well-designed as the Shared Photo Stream section of your iPhoto app, but it’s a great addition that brings all the functionality of Facebook photos to your Mac without forcing you to visit the website.
