Status Update: Onstar likes Facebook

BusinessWeek.com reports that OnStar will be adding Facebook to it’s bag of tricks GM owners can use while driving.

Nothing official from OnStar yet, but it sounds like this is going to happen sometime this month.

Clearly OnStar has to up it’s infotainment services to compete with Ford Sync (and the other players bringing up the rear) and they will likely also move some services to free a la Ford Sync.

In the end, pretty much all of these platforms are going to offer the same services from location-based-this to social-networked-that (very much like most major smartphones can all do the same thing) and the true point of differentiation will be how these services are delivered.
