Anandtech reported on a couple of new Gateway laptops which feature, among other things, "unsurpassed social network integration".

Suppose that that means that some kind of app runs that reports everything you do to Facebook. It could log how often you go to porn video sites, how long you watch, and maybe cause Facebook to display ads to you for things like premature ejaculation...?

There's a hardware button that launches Facebook.

...comes in the form of an integrated "social networking" shortcut button that will connect users to sites such as Facebook, YouTube, and Flickr. To be honest it seems like a bit of a gimmick, but bearing in mind the target audience it will probably come in quite handy.
