Partners With Facebook for Inauguration Coverage

CNN and Facebook are partnering for coverage of the upcoming inauguration. Facebook user statuses will be updated with streaming updates of Obama’s inaguration. Facebook users will be able to log in to Live through Facebook Connect and update their statuses while watching the live stream on January 20th.

I have yet to see how this integration works exactly but it sounds like this is a basic Connect integration with status updates built directly into the video player. There will also be the ability to view your friends status updates that were sent from the Live video player. The service will “tag” status updates in a similar fashion to the many Twitter users that tag their tweets at events.
