image thumb31 Facebook TimeLine And How To Get It (Video Tutorial)

The F8 conference was fun, especially reading all the comments that people had and the continuous giggling of Mark Zuckerberg. Though I totally understand why he giggled throughout the conference repeating every word and feature at least half a dozen times, but he has given us (at least myself) a timeline that I sort of enjoy. Maybe momentarily, but something I look forward to enjoying the most.

image thumb74 Evil: That’s An Option For Facebook Like Button

We all know that the social Facebook is more than just serious about making the Web social, something which Mark Zuckerberg himself emphasized on at the f8 when he said the Default is Social. The features are already out there with Web wide like button and knitting the third party sites closer to Facebook. But go over to the page here and customize the Like Button for yours site, the colors especially.

Facebook thinks that there is going to be a need for people to actually use the word Evil when it comes to associating an expression to a site or page online. You can chose from three colors: Light, Dark, Evil. While Light and Dark are justified why would it use Evil?

image thumb72 Facebook Presence: Let The RFID Take Charge Of Location At f8 [is this a part of Facebook Location?]

Talk about being hi-tech. Facebook has taken identification pretty seriously as the social network has given each of the attendees an RFID fitted badge and if I am not wrong it is all a part of the Facebook Presence thing the Web is ringing with. If you are at the conference you can simply enter the Tag Number on the Presence Page and have it connected to your profile.

The idea has obviously been used at many conferences almost everywhere. But the platform is utilizing the same to help you Tag yourself in the photos, link to Pages and almost any other activity you are busy with. The idea is to remove the need to get to a computer to post updates or share your activity, whenever you tap the tag or swipe it. Sounds interesting, I mean who has the time at these conferences to actually do simply things like tagging on a computer? There are more important things to do and keep an eye on.

image thumb71 Facebook f8: If You are Lucky Watch It Live Stream at Feightlive Or Follow Updates on Twitter [#f8]

If reading about the f8 on a blog appears to be slow and time consuming you can have a richer experience with the Feightlive App for Facebook. You can watch the Live Stream, read Live Blog or simply chat with other f8 enthusiasts. Other than that if you are bogged down with a snail paced Internet connection simply head over to Twitter and follow all updates at #f8.

I was having this conversation earlier today with my colleagues about how we live in a totally revolutionized world. Things have become far more convenient. Think of it, how many of us could have been cursing of not being able to make it to the f8 conference? Almost everyone who cares about it, you couldn’t have done that 2 years back but now its catching all the flames. I personally think soon they would start charging for this, a very meager amount but they will. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of a live audience at events such as these?

image thumb70 f8: Facebook Presence – Every Activity On Facebook [Isn’t That The Obvious Plan?]

Doesn’t that picture say everything about the plans the social network has about sharing your activity? I have kept out Facebook purposely from the sentence because we are all already so much into sharing our activity on the social network that it has become quite default. The idea now is to get everything you do online over to the platform. Which is why you will have a global Like across the Web and Facebook Connect on almost every page you visit.

The f8 is just about to start and we are waiting what big things are set to roll out. Stay tuned to Startup Meme as we try to bring you as much as we can from the Conference itself.

Free is the Winner, especially on the Web and when you already have sold out events in real you can definitely showcase them for free, especially for the larger lot who can’t make it there. Facebook is doing the needful with its f8 conference. The social network would stream the conference content on its f8 Fan Page and all that will happen live.

image thumb109 Facebook All Set For The f8 Conference in 2010

The Facebook has grown in every way to an extent that it wont be wrong to call it the default name for everything Social. There is no stopping the social network and the predictions for the future are as bright as ever. It is interesting to note how the network has grown and the persistence with which it continues to do the same. Coming to the point, the yearly conference called the f8 conference and the third one.

There will be too much to talk about in the third one that is to take place in 2010. Facebook has come a long way, beginning first in 2007 when the platform launched with 800 developers and the same conference will now be talking about a platform that has more than 500,000 applications and over 300 of them boast having 1 million users. That isn’t it, the use of Facebook has expanded in numerous ways. For instance there are more than 60 Million people that connect and interact using the Facebook Connect across 80,000 sites on the Web (including ours). And that is not it, applications developers have utilized the platform to not only muster millions of users but also bring those developers loads of funding (Zynga grabbing $180 Million, for one). And it surprises one even less when investors are willing to flood in with their cash and grab the shares of the social network.
