Facebook Connect has now been around for a year. In that time it has accomplished quite a lot, and perhaps allowed developers and webmasters to accomplish even more.

"From social widgets like the Comments Box, Share button and Live Stream Box to deeper integrations including log in, Facebook Connect is helping developers drive more traffic to their site, ease the registration process, and provide a more engaging experience for users," says Ethan Beard, who leads the Facebook Developer Network. "By adding social elements through Facebook Connect, websites in a variety of verticals are revolutionizing industries."

Facebook shares the following stats for Facebook Connect:

– More than 80,000 websites and other services have implemented Facebook Connect since its general availability in December 2008

– More than 60 million Facebook users engage with Facebook Connect on external services every month (not including mobile use of Facebook)

– Two-thirds of comScore’s US Top 100 websites and half of comScore’s Global Top 100 websites have implemented Facebook Connect

A lot of people on the web have probably used Facebook Connect and have no idea what Facebook Connect even is. Sometimes it’s just as simple as logging on to a website with your Facebook information. As more sites integrate it, it’s just starting to become part of the routine.

Integration will likely continue to grow significantly around the web, because Facebook isn’t showing too many signs of losing users. The company just recently surpassed the 350 million users mark. Facebook is going to be even more in people’s faces than ever too, now that Google is showing real-time search results for many queries.
