There is a lot of hype right now about all the changes to Facebook. At the very basic level, these changes make it simple for any website to integrate content into Facebook. The magical power driving this change? The "Like" button.

When you click the "Like" button anywhere online, a few things happen:

1) Your Facebook profile is updated with a link to the page you "liked"

2) Updates on that page now appear in your feed giving marketers easy access to integrating their content on facebook

3) Your picture shows up on that page viewable by your Facebook friends who also come across that page
