Jede Website kann künftig eine Facebook-Seite sein

Facebook hat für das zweite Quartal 2010 die „Open Graph API“ angekündigt. Für mich klingt das nach einer recht bedeutenden Neuerung:

The Open Graph API will allow any page on the Web to have all the features of a Facebook Page. Once implemented, developers can include a number of Facebook Widgets, like the Fan Box, or leverage any API, which enable the transformation of any Web page so it functions similar to a Facebook Page.

For example, AwesomeTees might decide that strategically they would like to locate their brand identity at www.awesometees.com. AwesomeTees will install the Fan Box widget, which will allow any Facebook user to „Become a Fan“ of AwesomeTees, thereby establishing an official connection to AwesomeTees. The user will then have AwesomeTees listed in their list of connections on their profile as Pages are represented today. Additionally, any content that AwesomeTees publishes on AwesomeTees.com will show up in the stream on Facebook like it normally would. And, any time the user searches on Facebook, AwesomeTees will show up in the typeaheads and prominently in search results.

Weitere Neuerungen sind bei doing business on facebook nachzulesen.

Ich nutze für meinen Blog schon seit längerer Zeit eine Facebook-Seite.
