The event scheduled for this Wednesday, Jan. 18, in San Francisco will present new tools for developers.
The decision of the social networking giant came after an internal evaluation of the like button. With these new tools users can share activities without having to endorse them with the like button. If your friend is watching a movie and post it on Facebook, you can say that you have watch or read the same book without the need to like.
In addition to new actions from Gestures the new Open Graph allow some changes:
• The applications will not need to ask permission to post in the user profile each time it is triggered. From now on you will only authorize the application the first time you use it.
• Applications that use the Open Graph will automatically post on ticker (sidebar updates in real time), but will not appear on the timeline, only if they are marked as important events.
• Users can share experiences, listen to music at the same time with Open Graph applications.
What do you think about these changes? Are you eager to share every activity of your day? Leave a comment below.
