Skyscanner tries one method of pushing search results into Facebook

Came across a quirky feature on the new Skyscanner site this morning when, inevitably, we were looking at Ryanair fares on other websites.

Underneath the search results there is a small Facebook logo titled "Brag about this flight on Facebook".

Click on the logo and, if you are logged into the ominpresent social network, a new window appears in Facebook with a message already set up, allowing members to add the results onto their profile page or send as a direct message to friends.

Nice idea and probably being done elsewhere. It was the subtlety of it, ironically, which got it noticed in our case.

Facebook better watch out though. It doesn't want to be added to The List.
