Facebook Beacon and Plaxo Pulse

I found this piece by Lawrence Coburn to be a very interesting take on Facebook’s latest controversial feature, Beacon. I don’t think I fully agree, but it is true that Beacon gives sites on the web and interesting way to be included in the stream of content inside Facebook — without having to write an app for Facebook’s proprietary F8 platform.

F8, Beacon, OpenSocial, and some interesting things to come early next year should have all of our heads spinning…

    I wish facebook had plaxo’s lifestream system instead of their mini-feed engine. Some of the third-party apps on facebook fail to insert actions taken on their site on my feed (like digg) and they work fine on my plaxo pulse.
