On May 9, 2008, Facebook won the Internet. Or at least it should have.
On that date, in an open letter to the developer community, Dave Morin, then head of Facebook's platform efforts, announced the release of Facebook Connect: Facebook Connect is the next iteration of Facebook Platform that allows users to "connect" their Facebook identity, friends and privacy to any site. This will now enable third party websites to implement and offer even more features of Facebook Platform off of Facebook.
