Facebook

Dave Levy's Facebook profile Friends are moving to Facebook, so yesterday I had my first look at it. I checked out some of the add-on applications available by browsing the utility applications pages and discovered some amazing facebook applications. I have installed "my RSS" and connected to my bliki's rss stream (No I havn't there seems to be a quality issue with it, fortunately, there are several other apps that claim to do the job). I have also installed the del.icio.us (which works) and the plazes plug in (which has some problems), but there are so many that seem worthwhile and I need to go back to check them out.

I should probably get some feed back from my correspondents as to how they feel about the traffic created by these applications which all seem to write into the facebook feeds.

I have connected this blog to my profile and this may mean that I need to using the summary/content feature of roller which until now I only use occasionally.

Whoever argued that opening up the applications interface is awesome competitive advantage is absolutely correct, a true proof point that free and open source creates value.

I have bookmarked "Define Me" & "Books" (now replaced by a query on books), but also think that "My wish lists" (amazon wish lists), Friend Cloud, Memberships all seem worth exploring.

Talking to Alec Muffet, he suggests that it's possible disadvantage is that it is an internet end-point, it only broadcasts to your friends in the community and none of this interesting stuff about oneself is available on the net. I suppose your friends havn't given permission to publish their content. Alec, however, will probably let us know what he thinks soon.
