There’s some big Facebook news out there this month and it just so happens to coincide with Elements Inc focusing this entire month to Facebook. If you haven’t already read our blog post on Facebook as an SEO Tool you should take a look at it as it goes over some very simple steps that can be beneficial to your corporate website.

As for the Facebook news: Earlier this month Facebook anounced a couple of changes that could have a big impact on how people use Facebook. The first was their addition of a new Groups feature which lets Facebook users segregate the dismination of their social news. This would allow discusssions of last night’s kegger to be shared with people in your ‘friends’ group, but not in your ‘work’ or ‘family’ group. The other feature Facebook announced that has received less visibility is the ability for users to export all of their Facebook information, including pictures and videos.
Just today Microsoft announced that Bing will integrate Facebook like data into their search engine results. Bing users will now see customized content based on their likes and the likes of their friends. Bing will now also be able to recommend Facebook friendship connections based on mutual friendships and similiar likes as well.
