On Wednesday night, Facebook launched 60 new apps that tie in closely with Timeline, the company’s new profile page for users.

These aren’t conventional apps that you use inside Facebook like FarmVille.

They are new “Timeline Apps” that help you tell your friends exactly what you’re doing using external apps.

For example, if you install the Hulu app, friends will be able to see when you’re watching movies and TV shows on, right inside their Facebook News Tickers.

To get any of these apps, simply find the one you want here, then “log in” using your Facebook credentials. For many sites, all you’ll need to do is click the “Log In With Facebook” button.

With Spotify, you can join in and listen to songs with friends in real time. (This isn't a new app though, it's been around since Facebook first announced Timeline apps.)

On your Timeline, Spotify keeps track of all the music you listen to in one convenient box.

The Words With Friends app makes your word choices a bit more public. If someone keeps throwing lame words, call them out on it.

Hot 2011 startup shares new radio stations you make and songs you queue up while you're DJ-ing.

Any time you rate a movie on Rotten Tomatoes, it will be shared to Facebook.

If you use a Kobo e-reader, it can notify Facebook the second you finish a book.

Installing Hulu shares TV and movies you watch with Facebook.

Foodily shares recipes you've craved and cuisines you've followed on Facebook.

Fab can share what discounted items you're buying.

Install the Pinterest app and share new posts with friends using Facebook, too.

Where I've Been instantly shares new places you travel to with friends.

The Ticketmaster app shares events you've been to, tickets you've purchased, and more.

There are 60 more apps to choose from.

Check them all out here.
