At its f8 conference in San Francisco Wednesday, Facebook announced that it is launching a series of plugins that will dramatically expand its presence across the Web.
“Social plugins are a way you can provide an instantly personal experience with one line of HTML,” said Bret Taylor, the company’s director of product.
These new plugins include:
A ‘Like’ button for the web: A frictionless way of sharing content back on Facebook
Activity streams: What a user’s friends have done on the site
Recommendations: Personalized content recommendations from a site
Facebook’s login page will also look different: It will show the person’s friends who have already joined the site.
