Facebook adds new apps to get users to share photos of what they eat, where they go
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) ' Facebook is adding a bevy of new applications to let users share everything from photos of what they cooked for dinner, what they are wearing or what concert they scored tickets to.
The world's largest online social network unveiled more than 60 new apps Wednesday that let users share the tiniest details of their lives on their Facebook profiles, now known as their Timeline.
Facebook users can already share the music they are listening to through apps such as Spotify, or the articles they are reading through Yahoo News and other services. Wednesday's announcement expands the number of available apps.
Facebook has called it "frictionless sharing." It means once you sign up for the apps, they'll automatically share your activity through Facebook. The apps include Ticketmaster, Rotten Tomatoes and Pinterst.
