Netvibes Announces Integration with Facebook Connect, Powering Personalized News Sharing for Millions of Facebook Users

From the offical press release:

" Netvibes will soon offer users even more ways to connect with Facebook friends on Netvibes via Facebook Connect. Any Facebook user can instantly login using their existing Facebook ID to create, personalize and save their own customized Netvibes page, as well as share their Netvibes activity feeds on Facebook.

This means that Facebook users can now leverage the power of Netvibes' award-winning personalization technology to quickly share widgets, photos, videos and news with friends across Facebook. Netvibes is the ultimate way to quickly find and enjoy hundreds of thousands of widgets and personalized rich media feeds all on one page--from full-length CSI:NY episodes to official content from EMI, New York Times and USA Today. Now all of that content can be instantly shared with friends on both Netvibes and Facebook simultaneously.

The new features are targeted to go live on October 23rd, making Netvibes the first personalized startpage and one of the Web's largest properties to become fully integrated with Facebook Connect. This announcement was made live earlier today at the Facebook Developer Garage hosted by Netvibes in Paris, France. The much-anticipated event was attended by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and focused on helping unite and educate Facebook and widget developers on open Web standards."
