The f8 Preview: How Facebook Plans to Take Over the Web

The f8 Preview: How Facebook Plans to Take Over the Web: "Facebook’s third f8 developer conference kicks off tomorrow in San Francisco and online, with the social networking company likely to announce what is essentially a game plan to not only socialize the web, but to marginalize the pre-social web. But while such a plan indicates a tussle with fellow upstart Twitter, the real battle is Facebook vs. Google.

And it’s a battle that, armed with its game plan and 400 million (and growing) subscribers, Facebook is going to turn into an all-out war. As I wrote last week, the company’s vision of the Internet is one connected to Facebook’s brain via hooks — and four of those hooks are expected to be unveiled at f8:

* Facebook Connect 2.0 with auto-login features
* Facebook Presence Bar
* Share/Like buttons
* Facebook Location"
