Users can share purchase info with friends
Apple is allegedly integrating Facebook Connect directly into the iTunes interface, according to TechCrunch. The service will allow users to share details of recent purchases with other Facebook friends, essentially improving existing functionality which also extends to Twitter.
Facebook is preparing to launch Facebook Connect within the next few weeks, a service designed to compete with MySpace Data Availability. According to TechCrunch, this is Facebook's first attempt at creating a new version of its API for third party websites, allowing users to link to their Facebook profile, friends, and privacy to a website. The website can also use features from the Facebook Platform to enhance functionality and personalization.
