What is Facebook’s plan with its newest domain registration: FBFeedback.com?

Facebook

So what is behind Facebook’s newest domain registration, FBFeedback.com?

While there’s no website online, and Facebook already has a Help center for gathering suggestions and feedback, there is something more to it. 

In addition to purchasing the domain FBFeedback.com, the social networking giant also registered two more related names using the registrar MarkMonitor — FBFeedback.net and FBFeedback.org.

You wouldn’t purchase the .com, the .net. and the .org without a plan, would you?

All three web addresses were purchased on July 25.

Is the company gathering feedback in hopes that it will beat Google+ to certain features, or is it working closer with the social performance platform Rypple?

Guess only time will tell.

Thanks for sharing.  Yup, it does look like it's for surveys. When I entered the web address the following message appeared on the page: "Thank you for taking the time to fill out our survey.
