Facebook has launched the next version of the Facebook Platform, which takes steps to integrate the social network more with other websites.

Founder Mark Zuckerberg launched the platform at the company's f8 developer conference, saying he wanted to create a larger network for people across a range of sites.

"We are making it so all websites can work together to build a more comprehensive map of connections and create better, more social experiences for everyone. We have redesigned Facebook Platform to offer a simple set of tools that sites around the web can use to personalise experiences and build out the graph of connections people are making."

Companies such as Love Film and MyDeco.com have already used the new tools to link to Facebook, and the social plug-in tools are available for other companies to do the same.

Zuckerberg said in a blog post, "We think that the future of the web will be filled with personalised experiences. We have worked with three pre-selected partners - Microsoft Docs, Yelp and Pandora - to give you a glimpse of this future, which you can access without having to log in again or click to connect."
