Facebook Connect: One Year Old

December 2009 marks the 1 year anniversary of our very favorite Facebook Connect. Facebook Connect was launched on December 4, 2008. Today, Ethan Beard, Director Facebook Developer Network presented a summary of Facebook Connects progress. In a year more than 80,000 websites and devices have implemented Facebook Connect, more than 60 million Facebook Users engage with Facebook connect on external sites and Two-thirds of comScore’s U.S. Top 100 websites and half of comScore’s Global Top 100 websites have implemented Facebook Connect.

Over the past year Facebook Connect has helped website owners and developers direct traffic towards their site. It is a feature that gives open access to millions of users to share external news, blogs, information etc. on their facebook pages. It also enables users to comment and give feedback on sites. Ethan Beard on the Facebook Developer blog gives an example of the type of services that have used Facebook Connect:

  • “Websites: Yahoo!, Huffington Post, YouTube, Bilde.de, MTV, MyVideo.de, Microsoft Live and MSN.com, CNN, Lufthansa, TVGuide.com, NBC.com, Lala, Orbitz, Netflix, Showtime, Yelp, iGoogle, Digg, and MasterCard
  • Mobile Applications: Many of the top iPhone apps, including Bejeweled 2, Tap Tap Revenge, USA Today, Scrabble, Rock Band, UrbanSpoon, Doodle Jump, Gowalla, Sportacular, and Movies
  • Game Consoles: Microsoft Xbox, Nintendo DSi, Sony PlayStation 3
  • Desktop Applications: iTunes, iPhoto, Seesmic, TweetDeck”

Facebook Connect has changed the way we communicate and share information online. Ethan Beard states that the possibilities of Facebook Connect’s growth are endless and this is just the beginning. Ethan Beard was also one of the participants at LeWeb today.
