Facebook's f8 Live Keynote

The f8 Live 2010 Keynote took place in San Francisco today April 21, 2010. Nerds and web developers should all find great excitement with the new features and functionality that Facebook announced at f8 Live.

f8–the always growing convention for Facebook developers–is going on now, and a kicky little conference gizmo has speculation raging that Facebook is about to announce some sort of location-aware capability.

Everyone attending the show is getting RFID tags (including our own Dan Nosowitz), so that you can check into the various booths on site. That enrolls you on the event’s fanpage, so that you can follow it online through Facebook–getting all the details after, or announcing your real-time whereabouts on your profile page. But maybe the coolest part is a screen on the main hall that visualizes all the check-ins in (almost) real time. So while you can’t actually track people as they move, you can see where everyone’s congregating.

These features will definitely change every Facebook user’s online experience, and with over 400 million people you and your friends will be able to share the experience much easier!
