Facebook finally announced the full launch of its new Open Graph, initially announced at f8 last year.

“The Open Graph has already had a significant impact on music, news, and video, but this was just the beginning,” explains Facebook’s Eddie O’Neil. “Starting today, developers can build apps that let people add anything they love to their Timelines – whether it is eating, traveling, shopping, running or taking pictures.”

This is what CEO Mark Zuckerberg was talking about when he said, “Last year we added the nouns, this year we added the verbs.”

60 new Open Graph apps launched today. You can see them all here.

Now, we get to see users’ Facebook timelines really come to life, and I’m guessing the ticker is going to get a lot more interesting.

“Once you’ve added an app, you can begin updating your timeline with your activities as they happen,” says Facebook’s Carl Sjogreen. “For example, if you love design, shopping or fashion, you can add the Pinterest or Pose apps to make your favorite items part of your timeline.”

“If you love to cook, you can add the Foodily app to your timeline and share your latest dishes,” he continues. “If your friends have added the Foodily app, you can discover new recipes with each other, as you’ll see their updates in the ticker and their timeline, and possibly News Feed.”

“Soon, there will be apps for all types of interests, as more apps will launch over time,” he says. “Whether you love snowboarding, gardening, hiking, or knitting, or something else, there will be an app for you.”

You can add apps to your timeline from here.

    Chat rooms have revolutionized communication between people. Where chat
    rooms have a number of advantages it has disadvantages too such as, people may
