Since the safety of talking and texting while driving has been highly publicized, we wonder how well received Facebook’ing while driving will be. Bloomberg is reporting that General Motors’ in-car safety system OnStar could receive a software update to allow Facebook integration as early as this month. Anonymous sources detail that the system would offer a speech-to-text function that would — presumably — allow you to post and comment to Facebook without typing. Analysts are claiming the OnStar “social upgrade” is an attempt to keep up with the well received Sync system designed by Microsoft and included in Ford vehicles. Bloomberg writes, “OnStar may begin offering entertainment and information services that link to a user’s smartphone without a subscription or fee.” OnStar declined to comment when contacted by Bloomberg.
