Although Apple's OS X Mountain Lion is scheduled to launch next month, Facebook integration won't make its way to the operating system until a software update this fall.

Those looking forward to full Facebook integration in OS X Mountain Lion will have to wait a few months after its launch to get what they desire.

According to Apple, Facebook integration in its upcoming desktop operating system won't be available until this fall. The company hasn't offered up an exact date, but considering iOS 6, which also includes Facebook integration, is launching in the fall, their launches may coincide.

Facebook integration across Mountain Lion will let users post photos, links, and comments from within applications. When users are signed in to Facebook, their friends will appear in their Contacts. Facebook notifications will be sent to Mountain Lion's Notification Center, and users will be able to update their status from that pane.

Mountain Lion's Facebook integration will be made available later this year via a software update.
