    This is a huge deciding factor on which phone I go with (Inc vs. X)

    Which phone integrates with social networking better? (mainly facebook, i only read posts on twitter, never tweet myself... so its not as big of a deal to me as fb)

    Or do both phones suck equally at it? (I see alot of people use the browser and touch.facebook instead of a stand alone app on both phones)

    Thanks in advance

    Having owned both a Motoblur Device(MotoCLiQ) and now and HTC sense(Evo 4G) I dont really see that much of a benefit one over the other. They both handle facebook and twitter updates very well. In fact any android 2.1 device will have good integration in those social networks, without these overlay widget interfaces.

    You cannot compare the old motoblur with the newer version It's apples and oranges. I personally don't like either that's why I put Launcher Pro on my X and just have a shortcut to facebook and view it through Dolphin HD

    I have to say Motoblur handles social intergration better than sense

    For instance on FACEBOOK FOR HTC SENSE/Friendstream

    it allows you to
    1)Upload photos
    2)update status/comment on others status
    3)Write on walls

    However motoblur allows you do that
    as well as seems to sync the profiles better

    and i love the fact that i can now reply to messages people send me on facebook and myspace

    i personally hate the social integration on sense devices....which is why i never used it but i love the social integration on my X

    When i had my Moto Backflip with blur i actually did keep the social networking widget on my first home screen was nice to open the phone, see a friends facebook picture and their latest post.....The friend Stream thing on sense however is eh...I used it once when i got my EVO and then threw it in the trash...Plus the widget was huge...While the MotoBlur Widget was Small enough to have my weather widget sit next to it and some icons on the bottom....When it comes down to the 2 I'll Choose MotoBlur...

    i've have both incredible and droid x. the motoblur social networking widget, although not as pretty as HTC Friendstream defintely works better to me, because it updates more regularly. i only use the widget for facebook as well.
