By now everyone and their dog knows I love social media. I gave up my full time job at a national law firm to pursue my passion and it’s pretty incredible to do what you love (and get paid). But, it’s not all rainbows and unicorns as some portray.
Today at Facebook’s F8 conference ), Mark Zuckerberg laid out his plan to turn the Web into “instantly social experiences.” The building blocks to this super-social Web are Facebook’s new Open Graph and Social Plugins, which include new “like” buttons everywhere on sites outside Facebook.com, auto-login capabilities for those sites without clicking on Facebook Connect, and even a Facebook social bar which includes several of these plugins plus Facebook chat (goodbye, Meebo). We’ve reported on all of these new features before, but today Zuckerberg put them into context: “we are building a Web where the default is social.” How is Facebook doing this?
