Facebook is ready to flex its advertising muscles. On Monday, Facebook's business director, Dan Rose, addressed attendees of the DLD media conference in Munich, speaking of the success of social games on Facebook from developers like Zynga and opportunities to expand its advertising to its 500 million-plus users. Touting the efficiency of Facebook's platform for companies like Zynga, Rose told conference attendees that the tendency for games to become increasingly social represents an opportunity -- but that music, video and other categories were also fertile ground.

DiDio said television is losing viewers to social networks, but it doesn't have to be that way? Why not create a social network centered on television shows? I work for, a social network that's centered on video and music. We don't have any TV shows yet -- it's mainly music tracks, videos of live musical performances, and music videos -- but we'll probably get some TV webisodes before too long.
