7pm: I. Dave Morin presents Facebook Connect
It can be summarized in 3 key points: Feed, Friends, Identity
a) Friends - Facebook has your real friends.
b) Social Context acts as a filter
You can learn more about your friend if you knew the same friend was on digg and had a certain preference.
c) Identity/Dynamic Privacy
People share on facebook because of the privacy setting. Dynamic privacy is all about user control. With dynamic privacy with fb connect users can take this comfort level to the web. When you change privacy setting on facebook, it will reflect on a fb connected web site.
Mike Vernal fb connect engineer presents an App "The Run Around"

Fb connect give three choice to developers to select the most natural experience to connect user to their site.
a) Embed user info in site using fbml call eg Welcome

On fb connect - user is in control on what info is shared or to opt-out
