Facebook has recently launched a new registration tool for site owners which will conveniently pre-populate fields on your sign up form with user data from Facebook. This extends to showing the user what information is being shared and also which friends are already signed up for the service.
With the increase in mobile technology there has been a dramatic increase in the number of people searching the web on their phones. Phones like the iPhone even allow for applications that direct you straight to a company’s mobile website. Is your site ready?
Last week Facebook announced their ‘Places’ service which allows users to display their current location through the site by “checking-in”. This is done in real time, so it allows people to share where they are, what they’re doing or even where they’re headed to. This provides an ideal opportunity to spread exposure to your location! (Ideal for a shop or restaurant!) So, how can a business benefit from Places?
