Facebook’s strategy, in some ways, follows an approach taken by Google nearly a decade ago. The Internet search engine, after establishing itself as a destination for Internet queries, began syndicating its search box, and later its advertising system, across the Web through toolbars and partnerships.

Facebook declined to comment on its coming announcements. But people familiar with Facebook’s plans say the company will introduce a series of products and technologies to deepen its presence across the Web.
