ABSTRACT
The article focuses on social networking Web sites Facebook Connect, and Google Friend Connect. Social features are chosen from a catalog of widgets on the Friend Connect website that enable an end-user Web site to engage more people. Facebook is not participating in Google's OpenSocial initiative for fear of losing control over users' social data. According to Charlie Cheever of Facebook, it was found that Friend Connect redistributes user information from Facebook to other developers without users' knowledge.
