The Facebook folks are definitely up and about these past few days, preparing one new feature after another.  You might have read about the Like button and the auto-connect feature that it plans to launch.  And now the latest Facebook feature that might soon hit us all is the new Facebook toolbar.

The Facebook toolbar is not your ordinary toolbar that goes away with the page that you just left. Instead, this will be a persistent toolbar, something that stays on your browser window no matter what sites you visit. The said toolbar will also allow third-party developers to integrate this toolbar on their Facebook apps.

In case you’re familiar with the Meebo toolbar, the new Facebook toolbar is similar to that.

Other details about the new Facebook toolbar is still unavailable, although TechCrunch believes that it will have sharing and chat features. It’s also uncertain whether the Facebook toolbar will include advertising.
