  • It all starts with the “Login with Facebook” button. It gives visitors the chance to log into your website with their Facebook user name and password, and is followed by a “Request for Permission” screen (above), which gives website operators a chance to capture extended information about the visitor, such as the “like” buttons they’ve clicked, their birth date, the city they live in and more. Unlike Facebook’s Social Plug-Ins, which are very simple and easy to install, the Graph API is a bit more difficult to get up and running, but it also offers much greater access to read and write information from to a third-party, destination website. Websites that take time to do that, have access to richer information about their visitors than ever before. Facebook users profiles and actions create more accurate, detailed demographics than any other media channel. Integrating the Graph API allows online marketers to build stronger relationships with website visitors through greater insights about the preferences
  • Amazon is using Facebook’s Graph API to take even more guesswork out of gift giving. Amazon introduced recommendations before Facebook even existed, but they were recommendations from anyone who had purchased something we bought. They weren’t personalized. They weren’t social.
