Facebook Takes Over the Web

If you weren't sure yet, Facebook is taking over the world! Well, at least the Internet. We've all become accustomed to clicking "like" button on the social networking site when something interests us and now we'll be able to do it on a number of other sites. This feature is intended to make the web "more social." Essentially, everything on the Internet will be linked to Facebook. When you "like" a photo, link, or web page, it will post directly to your wall. Many have also noticed the "link-website" box that pops up when you sign into your account. This will link your accounts from sites like Gmail with your Facebook. If you don't already have a Facebook, it's about time you get one!

The downside with this is that after you start liking things, your profile picture will show up all over the web. Your friends will be able to see that you liked that content, and they will have the ability to do the same for you. Even if you haven't recently logged into your account, when you view sites your friends recommendations will still appear. If this doesn't sound like your cup of tea, we recommend changing your privacy settings. It's time to get used to the Facebook way of life if you haven't already done so, because pretty soon there will be no way around it!
