Facebook Like Button Now Connects To Third Party Apps

Posted Jun 20, 2012

The Facebook Like button has now been integrated into social apps using the Open Graph. Now when you someone likes one of your photos on Instagram, you will see a notification that says “John likes your phone on Instagram.” The same applies to comments on Instagram, likes on Foursquare, and comments on Foursquare. You will have to authorize the app to publish the notification to Facebook. Many people will appreciate the integration, but I’m sure a lot of you want to keep your social media services separated.
