Netvibes Launches Facebook Widget; It's A Little Buggy

People are clearly getting a little fatigued with all the new Facebook applications – so it’s nice to see something that actually works in reverse by pulling Facebook data into another application. Netvibes launched a cool new widget today that pulls certain Facebook data into your Netvibes page. Once installed, the widget show messages, pokes, friend requests, and other information. The widget also shows information on friends and has a search feature.

I could install it but it won’t pull data from Facebook. Two of our interns were able to get it to work. Let us know if it works smoothly, or not, for you.

What would be awesome is if Facebook (or a third party using the Facebook API) created a general widget to post this type of information on any website.
