To that end, a combined 30 % of marketers surveyed by Silverpop planned to launch a mobile app in 2011 or 2012, and another 33% already had.

Source: Facebook To Launch Read, Listened, Watched, And Want Buttons The cat is out of the bag that Facebook is going to launch something big at its developer conference f8 this week.

We’re told these new buttons are “Read,” “Listened,” “Watched.” The network will also soon launch new social commerce buttons like “Want” following the introductions of the aforementioned buttons. It’s important to qualify that this is from a source (and not from Facebook) but from what we hear, Facebook users will be able to click Read, Listened, Watched on content in their news feed. And it’s unclear what will happen to the Like button and how these new buttons will affect the Like button.
