OpenLike V2 will allow the user to leverage Facebook Open Graph Protocol to customize which buttons will appear for different type of content, including news, movies, books and music.
The flow, according to Iskold, would propagate across different sites for the same content.
The user sees default buttons on each vertical. The defaults are based on XAuth - services that you use are there automatically. The user is also able to manually edit which buttons would appear for each type of content. Once edited, the choices persist across different web sites. This is done using iframe and local storage.
The widget can optionally leverage Facebook Open Graph markup to determine the type of content on the page Or the publisher can specify it manually.
The engineers are asking for help determining whether this is "directionally correct," feedback and QA once it's up and "suggestions for buttons for each vertical."
