In 2011, we learned that even our cars and trucks were going "social" when Salesforce.com announced its partnership with Toyota. However, the social capabilities of the partnership were limited in scope (car diagnostics, tune up reminders, etc.). What if your car could prevent you from driving a certain route because it knew what areas were traffic-heavy? That car sounds "social" in a fuller sense; it might be possible with the new Beat the Traffic API.
After four months, Facebook is set to open its timeline actions to developers this week, according to AllThingsD. The feature is an addition to the Facebook Graph API that allows developers to assign verbs for actions users perform within applications. For example, how users now "like" things, they'll also be able to "read" articles, "play" games and "listen" to music. I would expect many, many actions to be submitted to Facebook for approval, especially related to game-specific acts. It's too early to tell how closely the social network will watch its pending list of actions, though there's a clear approval process.
