Watch the DEMO Conference With Your Friends Through Facebook Connect

By admin Comment

Starting this morning at 8:30am PT, Facebook users will be able to watch the new startups presenting at this year’s DEMO Conference using Facebook’s Live Feed widget with Facebook Connect.


As with previous Live Feed integrations around President Obama’s inauguration, the NBA All-Star Game, and the Oscars, Facebook users can publish status updates from the DEMO site, and see the stream of status updates from all their Facebook friends or everyone watching the conference.

DEMO, which recently announced it will be taken over by VentureBeat’s Matt Marshall later this year, is one of the first major conferences to integrate Facebook’s Live Feed widget. Facebook has shown that its Live Feed widget is a great way for users to bring their Facebook friends around events happening anywhere on the web, making media more social.
