The final results are in for Facebook’s very successful CNN.com Live with Facebook integration from inauguration day: over 2 million Facebook status updates were published on CNN.com/live last Tuesday.
While last week’s Facebook integration is one of the first widely promoted events of its kind, it was a symbolic day for “social TV” on the Facebook Platform. The CNN/Facebook integration showed that millions of people want to talk with their friends while watching TV that they care about, even if they can’t be in the same place to watch it together.
Developers like Watercooler, LivingSocial, and Mesmo are also building applications that enable TV fans to watch TV together inside Facebook. As Facebook continues to grow this year, expect to see more people sharing their favorite TV with friends on Facebook and the Facebook Platform.
