CNN & Facebook Integrate For Obama

Facebook users will be able to share their thoughts on Barack Obama’s presidential inauguration at the same time as watching it online.

The social networking website has teamed up with CNN to offer users a split screen comprising coverage of the ceremony alongside Facebook status update streams, reports Reuters/The Hollywood Reporter.

According to the Editors Weblog, the collaboration came about after Facebook members were switching between TV coverage of the recent national elections and their profile pages in order to post updates.

Over 2,000 members have already visited CNN’s Facebook page to confirm their virtual attendance for the event.
