The Power of Facebook Connect
Establishing a presence on the social Web requires fundamental building blocks. Facebook provides these essential tools, including identity for a great registration system, and immediate access to 300 million active global users. Facebook Connect gives entrepreneurs of all sizes — and with varying developer resources — the ability to build traffic efficiently through reaching a relevant audience, while offering an engaging user experience. From making the registration process easier for users, to bringing friends together, to gaining distribution from sharing back to Facebook, there are many benefits that come along with Facebook Connect, and facebook is focused on helping you optimize your website and service to provide a more social experience for users.
With the Connect Wizard, you can now incorporate Facebook Connect into your site in 3 easy steps.
Additionally, the Playground for Facebook Connect provides code samples for adding profile pictures, user names, and friends to your site. We will continue to add more code samples as we see more usage.
