SILVER SPRING, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Webs.com, the world’s largest website building solution, where anyone can easily create a website and get free web hosting, today launched Facebook Connect integration, which allows anyone in the world to instantly create a Facebook-enabled social website. Millions of Webs.com users can now easily harness the power of the world’s most popular social network to enhance community interaction, bolster site traffic and drive brand awareness.
“Facebook Connect is yet another example of how Webs.com leads the market by delivering innovative, easy-to-use, website functionality to everyday consumers – a capability previously reserved for those with specific web development resources,” stated Haroon Mokhtarzada, CEO and co-founder of Webs.com. “The Webs.com integration of Facebook Connect marks the first time that self-published, standalone sites of any size can seamlessly integrate Facebook connectivity and fully leverage the power of Facebook’s social graph.”
Now, anyone with a passion or business can leverage a dynamic, social web presence at Webs.com. Facebook Connect is a powerful set of APIs that let users bring their Facebook identity and connections anywhere. With a Webs.com Facebook Connect-enabled site, visitors can login with their Facebook ID and bypass the need to create a new account. Visitors can then use their Facebook identity to interact with the site or site’s community and simultaneously post back to their Facebook news feed -- promoting their content to a massive community on Facebook.
As with Facebook Connect, Webs.com continually delivers first-to-market features and functionality where anyone can create dynamic websites that truly engage their audiences. Webs.com is home to over 50 million customized sites that range from small businesses (retail, ecommerce, services) to groups/organizations (churches, classrooms, teams, non-profit) to personal sites (family, hobbies, fansites). With features like blogs, photo galleries, web stores, member profiles and group publishing, anyone can have a dynamic web presence that is integrated with the social fabric of today’s Internet.
Facebook Connect joins an increasing set of rich, dynamic features and apps that Webs provides. Last October, Webs launched its App Store, which now includes over 20 applications, including Meebo’s Community IM, an Etsy store app, and BookFresh’s appointment scheduler and payment collection app http://www.bookfresh.com/.
Webs.com is the world’s largest website building solution serving over 50 million users, where anyone can easily create a website and get free web hosting. In addition to its easy-to-use website building tools, Webs also offers an increasing array of rich, dynamic apps that empower users to go beyond static websites to create an engaging social web presence.
