Facebook Connect goes mobile

Facebook is extending its Connect data portability technology to developers of mobile sites and applications, following its launch six months ago for iPhone developers, the company announced in an official blog.

Connect creates a link between Facebook and external sites to let people use their previously created Facebook accounts to sign in to these other Web sites.

At sites that have implemented Connect, Facebook can also port content from user Facebook accounts, like profile information, photos, notes, lists of contacts, comments, status updates and the like.

“Facebook Connect for Mobile Web has the same rich features you find on Facebook Connect websites and iPhone apps,” wrote Michael Eyal Sharon, a Facebook product manager, in the blog posting.

In a related announcement, Facebook said that 65 million people access its Web site from mobile devices, up from 20 million eight months ago.
