Amazon connects with Facebook - not with Beacon reports that Amazon has rolled out a new application to help customers with purchase decisions based on their use of Facebook. According to the report, the match-up will also give Amazon shoppers a heads-up about a friend's upcoming birthday, in case they want to use Amazon to buy them a gift. For those who remember Facebook's ill-advised Beacon program, which shared your purchase activity on third-party sites in your Facebook news feed and was dumped in September 2009, rest assured that this link-up will not share your Amazon purchase history on Facebook. You can purchase a "Twilight" book or a Justin Bieber album without fear of mockery from your Facebook friends.

Will you connect with the new feature? How do you feel about about "social shopping" - would you be willing to try, or try it again?
