Facebook is now, in my mind, a more formidable force than Google. They get it. They aren’t lobbing things at the wall to see what sticks, they know exactly where the web is going.
In case you missed it, they announced “The Platform” today at their f8 conference.
There are already 30+ applications right out of the gate. There’s Twitter integration, there’s the “Causes” application (I’ve already created a “cause” for Tusubira using it), there’s Box, Feedburner, and more.
Color me impressed.
