Facebook takes Dr. Phil's recommendation and gets cozy with is working hard to connect its network of over 15 million users with social networking giant, which boasts 58 million active users.  Facebook is looking to put one foot in front of the other, and avoid mistakes after alienating its users by installing adware on their computers and posting their purchases online.

Fortunately, Facebook's approach with seems less nosy and more cozy. with Facebook's help will implement a feature called "Little Black Book", which links Facebook profiles to daters.  Both companies are working to make this service unobtrusive, but helpful.  Users must sign up for the service.  After signing up, the service allows them to search profiles of Facebook users and non-Facebook users who want to date someone.  It will also send daily profiles to the user. 

Another feature being implemented is called "Match My Friends".  This feature allows a Facebook user's friends and family to create a profile of the person, to help let other prospective dates know more about them.  The feature is only usable if the Facebook user who the profile is about gives consent.

The partnership between and Facebook is perhaps the most significant move for the the social network since its recent establishment of a partnership with Microsoft.  Facebook continues to have some hiccups, but continues to show exemplary growth and move along in its goal of social network domination.

You know you can customize your Facebook account to ignore pretty much anything and everything, right? I only allow it to send me friend requests or event invitations... although I did opt in for iLike, because music is great to have. It's only as cluttered or annoying as you allow it to be.
