Blizzard Integrating Battle.net with Facebook

We may be giddy with excitement when it comes to release dates and pre-orders for StarCraft II but Blizzard has another announcement for us: the company is planning to integrate Battle.net and Facebook to allow StarCraft II fans to share and connect with other fans on Facebook.

CNet reports that the first step of the integration will see Blizzard enable StarCraft II players to easily add Blizzard gamers from their Facebook friends list to their Battle.net friend lists. Another feature will allow you to brag about scores, presumably via status update.

That's it for now in terms of details but Blizzard is promising "information about other Facebook-related features on Battle.net will be announced at a later date."

    Honestly, all of the data that facebook accumulates is scary... Not that Starcraft II will give others a lot of personal data, but still...

    Facebook is annoying enough with status updates coming from Farmville players...I'm seeing Facebooks death is it integrating with too many things and status updates just become a useless dump of automated messages.
