OpenID is already a beast to implement, and I bet this one is going to be the same, but could be extremely valuable to a website if it gets them free exposure on the largest social networking site in existence:

Announced back in May and in private beta testing for some time, Facebook Connect allows users to harness their Facebook credentials and data on participating external websites, then bring those experiences back to the Facebook community, all backed by strict data retention policies and granular privacy controls.

I am interested to see how well this service will be used by consumers. It will be an interesting avenue for marketers to develop finely targeted media strategies.

We are thinking about trying it out as well. We may conduct a poll of our users to see how many use facebook already.

>>a poll of our users

Not a bad idea, although you could probably guess based on demographics. If you deal with a sub-30 population, I'd predict high penetration. Particularly high if college grads, students, or college-bound.

I myself recently jumped on the Facebook bandwagon and I was very surprised to see most of my friends and colleagues already members (30's - 40's age group).

My guess... it is starting to catch on to the middle of the road generation as well...

I graduated from high school in 1963, and a number of my old classmates are on Facebook.
