First announced back in May, Facebook Connect rolled out this weekend and now you can take your followers with you. Specifically – you can now use your Facebook credentials to log into other sites across the web and see your Facebook friends’ activity on those sites.
Amid concerns over privacy – many sites are on tap to add this functionality to their own platforms – soon you will be able to see your Facebook friends on Discovery Channel sites, Digg, Hulu and more.
Instead of keeping information and platforms close to their chests – many Silicon Valley giants are looking to share at least a small amount of information if it makes the web more accessible for its users. The issue I see with this is privacy – and that’s not a new issue for Facebook.
