As part of something called the Facebook Presence, attendees of this year’s F8 conference received an RFID tag affixed to their conference badge, according to a Tech Crunch post.
The system allows attendees to check in at the various locations around the conference by simply swiping their badge. The post didn’t elaborate on what specific type of RFID the badge is using.
Attendees can log in to their Facebook account and link the tag number to their profile so that their location is updated in real-time, and then imported into their profile.
By simply tapping the tag to readers throughout the venue, attendees can share their activity, tag themselves in photos, connect pages, and more.
The Facebook f8 conference is where developers and entrepreneurs collaborate on the future of personalized and social technologies, exploring a variety of topics including new tools and techniques, business growth strategies and open technologies.
