Ford attends Facebook Hackathon to create The Social Car

Most of us don’t quite understand why we’d want Facebook in our cars, but during a recent Hackathon at Facebook’s Palo Alto campus, the Blue Oval and the new Big Blue combined forces to go beyond status updates and photos sharing.

In an effort to make a truly “social” car, devs from Facebook held one of their monthly Hackathons that incorporates some of the social giant’s most popular apps into Ford’s SYNC system.

The all-nighter bred a handful of integrated apps that allowed you to check-in somewhere as soon as you parked your car, find a restaurant that one of your friends “liked” and even automatically stream songs that your friends have posted on their walls.

You can get a taste of what came out of the event in the video after the jump.
