You Like Me, You Really Like Me [Cancelled?]

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

Forget everything you thought you knew about the web. Today the Internet is powered by people.

In this new personalized web, the most valuable insights are no longer abstract algorithms, but the connections between people and the things they care about. In a web defined by people, no two people should see the same content. The Like button is powering this movement by enabling people to show their interest in objects around the web and share them with friends.

During this presentation, Facebook CTO Bret Taylor will look at the power of the Like button – including how people are discovering more personal experiences on their favorite sites, as well as the opportunities it’s created for developers to grow their presence on the web.
