Facebook has made a couple of additional instant personalization partnership announcements recently, including integrations with Scribd and Rotten Tomatoes

Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg says that in the future, all media will be personalized. This seems a little more likely than her claim that email is on its way out. 

On site, Facebook has increased the number of ads displayed in various areas of the site from three to four, according to Josh Constine at InsideFacebook.
