BrightKite and FaceBook Connect

I was reading on Cnet how BrightKite was now syncing with Connect from Facebook.

I logged into my account, and under account settings, found the Connect options.  The process was amazingly simple.  Well done to the team.  You can read their blog post or watch the video of what the process was like below.

But what does this mean?

I can’t stop thinking that FaceBook wants to jump out of their walled garden.

Instead of applications (notice how the applications are almost hidden in FaceBook now?) we now have Facebook Connect.  Or so I see it.

Facebooks apps can now be any app or site on the net.  Interesting.
