Explode comes to Facebook

Dave Tosh of Elgg fame points to their integrating ex.plode.us (love that URL) into Facebook: Social search comes to Facebook via Explode. This is so very cool. Explode is new, but has so much potential. I've been following it for a while, and find developments like this quite exciting.

This Facebook app brings all the power of Explode's social search - as well as nudges, external friendships and more - to Facebook users. If you're a Facebook user, you can click here to install it for yourself.

Opening up Facebook

One of the reason I am quite excited by this development is because it is the first app on Facebook that lets Facebook users properly connect to and interact with people who are not Facebook users from their Facebook space, and yes there are people out there who don't use Facebook :)

One of the things I do love about Explode is that it is a consumer of OpenID. We're seeing more and more sites accepting OpenID logins. Yay! The OpenID authentication from the Explode Facebook widget is not yet working, however.

When they get this working from within Facebook it will be most cool!
