Facebook Rolls Out Recommendations Bar

Last Thursday, Facebook launched the Recommendations Bar, a new social plug-in* that helps people find articles based on what their friends like and share from your site.

Much as the Like button works, when a person likes an article using the Recommendations Bar, a story is published back to their timeline and friends’ news feed. This is how it looks:

As a person reads an article, a small pop-up surfaces at the bottom of the screen highlighting recommended articles and prompting them to like the page. Recommendations are based on content that friends have explicitly liked and shared in your app or website.

* Social plugins let you see what your friends have liked, commented on or shared on sites across the web.
