Facebook Connect Developer Docs Released

Yesterday at f8, Facebook officially launched Facebook Connect, a JavaScript client library and API for third party websites to integrate with Facebook more powerfully than they could with previous APIs for third party websites.

With Facebook Connect, webmasters can allow users to authenticate with their Facebook credentials, find friends who also use your site, and publish activity on your site through their Facebook feeds. For many webmasters, Facebook Connect could be a great way to ease the registration process and grow your site’s traffic.

Facebook Connect will be in beta until the fall. Webmasters should check out the developer documentation on the Facebook Developer Wiki for more initial details:
