Is there an app that lets you set up iPhone profiles?

Can you set up profiles on the iPhone? Like, if my friend borrows my phone, I don’t want her to be able to use my Facebook but I don't want to keep logging in and out!

I don't think so, BUT: have you thought this through?
It IS a phone ;) Unless you always keep it in your safe, you should log out! And frequently change your passwords! What if you lose it?

I genuinely do not know of an 'app' like the one you're looking for, but weighing all possible options and risks I'd say, hey, what's so bad about typing in a password compared to having all your online accounts hijacked? My mate had massive problems last year because of one carefree moment with his gmail account password - from there his fb, twitter and bank account were hacked, and all of his contacts were approached also!
I have given away phones to virtual strangers, but I would NOT let anyone borrow the one that I use as my main device. Call me cynical, but at least I never had an account 'hacked' - and with 6 active email accounts I do not receive a single bit of spam.
I will keep looking into the app you're after though :)
