A snippet from the Facebook Developers blog
Facebook is taking social applications programming mainstream. With the recent API it makes it possible to target social data available via API calls from any website.
The process makes users leverage the data from Facebook and it will be interesting to see how criticism related to Facebook’s “Walled garden approach” is played out.
“Rather than building your applications strictly within Facebook, you can now extend the full functionality of the platform to your own website and leverage Facebook as the tool for managing members and their relationships. Want to build your own social gaming platform that resides on your own website but leverages the power of users’ Facebook relationships? Now you can!”
So how do you see the developments in the social platform field shaping up with Facebook offering itself as an application host?
