Facebook’s Personalized Social Plugins on over 100,000 websites!

Facebook’s plan for world domination is in effect!

There was a cool techie tidbit out today from Facebook that I wanted to share with you.

“Facebook Platform’s tools enable you to capture the power of the social graph. On Facebook, we’ve seen how much more people engage with different content — such as photos, events, and games — when their friends are involved. Now, our social plugins offer you a toolkit of social functionality that you can add to your website. These personalized experiences catch the attention of your users because, without any setup or data shared, they can immediately see what their friends find most interesting and engaging on your site.”……Justin Osofsky.

What’s a social plugin?

When you are on Facebook and you see the ‘LIKE’ button next to a comment. Yeah, that’s it.

Why Should I Care?

This simple technology will give websites the ability to increase viewers & hopefully engagement possibly by double.

Huge News for Facebook & Great Potential for you.

Facebook Connect was released to the public in 2008 to assist websites integrate the Facebook Platform.

In just over a year, more than ¼ of a million sites are using Facebook’s Application Programming Interface, or API’s to provide “social context” in their products.

Why is this growth important and who’s actually using it?

As more websites use these social widgets well, Facebook will gobble up more interaction across the web to thanks of big companies that are currently using them like,
IMBD.com, DailyMotion.com, NHL.com & Scribd.com, to name a few.

Justin also adds, “Now just one line of HTML turns on the ability for users to engage with content buying online drugs through the Like button, and see their friends’ actions through the Activity Feed and Recommendations plugins.”
