Facebook and eBay have unveiled a new partnership for online shopping. The new business unit will apparently “seamlessly” integrate eBay with Facebook’s “open graph” platform—its map of friends and social connections—to create a “social shopping” experience.

As well as "liking" or "recommending" pages, the new service will let Facebook users "want" items they find during online shopping. They can also “love," “own," or “review” products, according to Forbes, so that friends can see these notifications in their news feeds and visit the sellers themselves.
