Infographic on Facebook Social Widgets Timeline
Great infographic today on TechCrunch about the launch of social widgets or plugins on Facebook.
These plugins (like the Like Button, Recommendations, and Activity Feed) â€“ enable websites to provide social experiences to their users with just a few lines of HTML. All social plugins are extensions of Facebook and are specifically designed so no user data is shared with the sites on which they appear.
