Your Social Graph everywhere… how Facebook connects your profile across the Web

Facebook has announced today that users can now connect their profile across websites, such as CNN, Microsoft Docs, Pandora, Yelp, etc.

Per Facebook’s announcement:

Your Friends
Find out what your friends have liked, shared, and commented on through the Activity Feed and Recommendations social plugins.

And

None of your data is shared with the site when you view social plugins. Social plugins pull information directly from Facebook and the site has no access to the data being displayed to you.
