Mountain Lion includes a sharing utility that syncs with most applications but guess which gargantuan social media network is missing? You got it – Facebook.  With more than eight times as many active users than Twitter, you’d think Facebook would be number one in their list of sharing applications.

One of Mountain Lion’s newest elements is called “Shared Sheets” which it imported from its mobile iOS platform.  Users can easily bookmark items, add them to their reading list, message them, Tweet them and more.  Interestingly, Facebook is not listed among the list of applications in Mountain Lion’s new share sheets.
