Facebook To Launch Read, Listened, Watched, And Want Buttons

Looks like Facebook just ramped up “Likes” to a more dynamic toolset of sharing and engaging. This could really turn what we’ve picked up in the recent past on social media marketing upside down.

Full story on Techcrunch

The cat is out of the bag that Facebook is going to launchsomething big at its developer conference f8 this week. We’ve heard about the social music services that could be debuting in a few days, but as the New York Times conveyed this past weekend, Facebook is planning for ways to surface personal content better. And we’ve heard from a source that Facebook will introduce new buttons on the wall that will begin introducing some granularity to the “Like” concept. We’re told these new buttons are “Read,” “Listened,” “Watched.” The network will also soon launch new social commerce buttons like “Want” following the introductions of the aforementioned buttons.

Some photos from my Saturday out with a new Canon S95.

First, Jon Lombardo at GE tipped me off to some free tickets to Makers Faire, the massive science fair filled with 3D printers and kid inventors. On the way out I stopped at 5Pointz, the famous grafitti hall of fame in Queens off the 7train to test the color.

I headed back to the city after that to check the Anonymous endorsed #occupywallstreet protest and see the outcome. Thousands of people took over the financial district on Saturday and public safety officials closed down the main entries to Wall Street, blocking off the NYSE in the middle of the primetime tourist weekend path.

I then went to Le Grand Fooding where Dante Fried Chicken was cooking with world famous chefs and music stars in a beautiful outdoor sculpture garden in Soho for the annual event.

What a day, only in #nyc.
