Facebook’s annual f8 developer conference is about to begin, and you can view a live stream of the action online. The social network received a design overhaul earlier this week, and the company is expected to announce a music streaming service that allows users to share and listen to tracks with friends. Facebook for iPad may finally be released too, so stay tuned in at LiveStream to get the news as it happens.
- A “Timeline” profile view has been introduced. It summarizes your Facebook-life by combining all your stories, apps, and important events into one page, which can be navigated by year. The farther back you go, the more condensed the timeline gets. Like Time Machine for social networking.
- Integration with Netflix, Spotify, MOG, Rdio, and others for sharing videos and listening to music with friends. Once you approve an app to post in your timeline once, it will never prompt you again. Facebook calls this “Frictionless”, but it will be seen as very invasive by users who appreciate privacy.
