Send button, another plugin from Facebook

April 26th, 2011

Facebook announced today that they released a new button, the Send button to be used by itself or along with or in the context of the Like button.

During the time when Google is working on +1 for integration with websites, Facebook’s new effort in adding this button to their collection of plugins further strengthens Facebook’s presence across the web.

The Send button enables Facebook users to send links and recommendations only to specific friends, Facebook Groups that the user subscribed, even send to emails unlike the Like button which shares a link to all friends of the user.

Use the send button below to recommend this blog to your friends.

The send button simplifies the way to reach to specific friends on Facebook.

Free Open Graph Manual

April 6th, 2011

Facebook’s huge experience in making use of the existing open graph standards to enhance sharing of data over the web is really cool for Google to look into as it tries to climb up in the social space. Recently, with the introduction of +1, it makes it easier for Google to penetrate this. Although there is going to be a lot of work involved in integrating websites to be part of the social graph, I think it is a big start and I am excited to see how Google can come up with ways to do it.
