Facebook To Launch Read, Listened, Watched, And Want Buttons

20 Sep

We’ve known its going to be announcing something big pretty soon, and we’ve learned now that it’s going to launch ‘Read, Listened, Watched, And Want’ buttons!

What does this mean?

Well according to Tech Crunch, this news comes from a source and not from Facebook itself. Users on Facebook will be able to click Read, Listened, Watched on content in their news feed. And soon, “Want” as well.

This is going to be whole host of new data for Facebook to use, but we’re not sure quite yet how they will use it.  Here at Teacup, we’re thinking they’re most likely to use the data for advertising, because it obviously lets Facebook know a lot more about its users, but only time will tell.

One thing’s for sure, it’s going to a very attractive prospect for retailers – so designers and e-commerce shops look out here for more details!
