    Topic:  Facebook Connect

    Summary: Facebook Connect is open to developers worldwide in a developer beta and sites will start going live to users in the coming weeks. Facebook Program Manager, Josh Elman, will discuss how to integrate the power of Facebook Platform into any third-party website and enable users to seamlessly “connect” their Facebook account and information with your site, find their friends who also use your site, and share information and actions on your site with their friends on Facebook. The session will also look at two of the building blocks for Facebook Connect – openness and control – and the importance of both in enabling users to take their identity and friends to other sites across the web, while maintaining control over their privacy.
