The Web is about Friends.

In fact, the whole web is becoming social - it’s moving from a web of documents (a web of data) - to a web organised around
people - your Friends.

We see this happening again and again - products which are built around people, around their connections, around their
INTERESTS - grow faster, grow bigger and get better than the products which went before them.

At the center of this transformation is the Facebook Platform.

Like Button

Tuesday, December 14, 2010


Lets start with the big one - the Like Button.

With Faces

Tuesday, December 14, 2010


But the Like button is more than just the Like button - there are a few different versions - which are worth noting.

But the most effective version of the Like button is the standard version, but with added Faces.

Faces brings social context - its like walking past a restaurant and seeing your friends inside - if you see friends, you’re much
more likely to go inside

In fact just ensuring your like button has Faces can transform your clicks, thus the amount of content shared,

When a user sees as more people like your content

As soon as people see 2 faces, as you can see, the change in CTR is dramatic...
By the time there’s 5 faces, users are 10x more likely to click the LIke button - think what that can do for your referral traffic.
The real estate needed to add Faces is worth it.

Example: La Repubblica uses the Like button on every one of their Serie A teams. The box says..

“Your Team on Facebook - Receive the news direct to your profile”

Juventus has had 101 Thousand Likes in just 5 weeks. Probably more by now.

Whenever La Repubblica publish a new story about a team (like Juventus) - they publish a story into Facebook which everyone
who’s liked that team may see - they’re using Like to drive people back to their site again and again - they’re using it like an
RSS subscription

Activity Plugin

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

The Activity plugin shows what your friends have been doing on your site - and it can be filtered by section so it
works on your homepage, and subsectional homepages too

It can also include recommended content for the user based on their history, their likes, and what people in
general have been sharing from your site

Live Stream Plugin

Tuesday, December 14, 2010


The Live Stream plugin brings realtime conversation to your site.

It works best around live shared events - news, sport, entertainment TV. It can transform the time users spend on your site
during these events - and every action gets posted back to Facebook, which brings more people back to your site to share in
the collective experience.

This how this could work for you alongside political debates - with hosts in the studio taking questions from people using the
plugin - you can magnify the effect

The Like button, Activity Feed and Live Stream are just some of our plugins. There are more now, and new ones on the way.

The social plugins are designed to give you the power of the Facebook Platform - quickly and simply.

The like button takes minutes to implement, and can transform your business. If you’ve already embedded the like button,
you should make sure you’re getting the best from it - look at the position, the size, and make sure you’ve added Faces and
Comments to get the most impact, and the most traffic back to your site.

Here’s a great example: Spotify

Spotify have made their product truly social. Not only can i share music really easily back to
Facebook, but I can see my Friends, their playlists and their favorite artists and tracks right
here.

Its transformed the way I, and millions of users find and share music - and its all because of
Social.

The problem here is that theres just too much music in the world - the normal ways to
browse for music, by category or genre, break down at this level. What you need are Friends
to guide you through - by recommending you great content.

Spotify leverages the Facebook Platform to bring your real, trusted friends - deep into their
product.

Thanks to Facebook, 60% of their traffic now comes from Facebook - this is how the
Facebook platform powers Traffic, and once there, drive Engagement in your product.

This is a great example of a fantastic commerce integration.

Amazon take your friends, look at their birthdays, and for each of your friends, they
recommend you products to buy them for their birthday - based on THEIR likes!
