Artfinder announces new Facebook integration at f8 Developer Conference
September 22, 2011 — Today at f8, Facebook’s developer conference, Artfinder announced a new Facebook integration that makes it possible for people to add their favourite artworks from Artfinder to their Facebook profiles. The new features enable people to connect around art online with their friends like never before.
Once people link their Artfinder profile to their Facebook account, they can begin sharing the art they favourite on Artfinder with Facebook. Artworks they have collected will show up in their own News Feed and in their friends’ feeds.
It’s important to note that people have controls over what and how they Artfinder with their friends. People can turn this functionality off at any time in multiple places on Facebook and on Artfinder.
Spencer Hyman, Artfinder CEO, said: “We’re excited to be announcing this new way for people to connect around and discover art on Facebook. Our aim is to make it as simple as possible to engage with great art, so it’s hugely powerful for both us to be so deeply integrated into Facebook in this way. It’s great that people can collect their favourite works then show and share their collections.”
