Facebook’s planet of social apps

Facebook has announced many new types of post descriptions (verbs). For example, previously people just ‘Liked’ something. Now they can share with their network that they ‘Bought’ something or ‘Read’ something or that they ‘Want’ something.
Facebook also recently announced 60 more Timeline applications that will now let users publish information to Facebook automatically. Most of the apps are newer versions of online and mobile apps like Foodily, Goodreads and Slacker.
Facebook wants its users to share all the data of their lives and wants thousands more apps to have the automatic share function. A user’s Facebook Timeline will then become a living stream of information that is updated automatically – for example – whenever that user buys a concert ticket, books a holiday or reads a recipe.
‘Our vision for Timeline and our vision for the application platform is whatever you love and whatever story you want to tell, you can add that to your Timeline,’ said Carl Sjogreen, director of product management for Facebook.
