Facebook has announced Facebook Connect for the iPhone, which allows users to take their Facebook friends, identity and privacy with them on Apple's mobile phones wherever they go.

Facebook Connect for the iPhone is the first live social experience for iPhone and iPod Touch applications, as users can now connect with their Facebook friends to play games -- whether their friends are at home on a computer, or on their iPhone.

The social networking company made the announcement on Saturday at the South by Southwest (SXSW) 2009 conference, and noted that there are nine applications that are currently live in the iTunes app store, with more to launch in the coming days.

Users can go to the iTunes app store to see the first nine applications:
