As a result of this partnership, they will have complete access to the ideas in the webspace. Which will be an advantage to built social products and pick the best startups before Google.

For Y Combinator, facebook will provide startups with good resources including the access to Facebook Credits and other beta features of the giant social network. Technical assistance, design and product support to name a few.

Y Combinator will use the winter 2011 class to dig social startups to benefit from its partnership with Facebook.

“In the near future, we think it will be hard to imagine a web experience that is not personalized. Startups that can build in these interactions from the beginning — not simply add them to existing products — will be the examples of transformative social experiences others will follow,” said Facebook Platform lead Carl Sjogreen.
