Facebook made some major announcements today about “making the web more social”.  In a nutshell, they’ve released a bunch of tools for websites to integrate Facebook functionality in them.  Here’s the link to the site with the widgets:

http://developers.facebook.com/plugins

Couple things:
- We are working on getting these into the Widget Bank ASAP
- We will be updating our share button to also have the new Facebook ‘like’ button

Also, and most importantly, there are a few of the new facebook widgets that require “Facebook’s Javascript SDK”.  For example, they have a commenting box widget that you can put anywhere on your site and it will add a facebook comment box.

The good news is, if you have setup your site with our new Facebook Connect feature, you already have the Facebook SDK on your site.  Which means these widgets will work for you right now!  If you don’t then its one more reason to set it up now!

Add Facebook Connect Now!

These are exciting times as we witness first hand the melding together of social presence on the wider web.  We’re happy to be on the forefront of these innovations and bring them to you as they become available.

Stay tuned,

    Is there any way to connect the website to my Facebook business page, instead of to my personal profile?
