  • Hi Cory, very sweet presentation! This helps a lot as I'm learning how to integrate an app into Facebook. I have a couple questions from slide 34 on best practices.

    The first one 'don't ask for permissions until proving value'...

    Can I get user to start using my app without permissions?

    And second, let's say I've asked permission to get their birthday. I decide later I want to also know email address. Would this change only take place on new users that agree to my app? Or are older users required to go through another permission acceptance page?

    Thank you

    3. 3. What Is Open Graph?
    4. 4. What is Open Graph? At Facebooks core is the Social Graph: People and the connections they have to everything they care about. With Open Graph, arbitrary actions and objects created bythird-party apps become a part of the user’s social graph, integrating that app deeply into the Facebook experience.

    24. 24. Benefits of Open Graph
    25. 25. Benefits of Open Graph Frictionless Sharing Users only need to approve the app once, and then every additional action is automatically shared. Control Of Branding Facebook allows apps to use their own branding, and let users speak the language they define. Deep Timeline IntegrationApplication data is treated equally with a user’s other data, giving Open Graph apps huge reach within the Facebook system.

    31. 31. What Now?
    32. 32. Focus On Core Principles of Social Design Identity Help users express themselves and gain personal value by using your application. Community Make it easy for users to connect with the people they know and trust. Conversation Allow users to share actions and engage with each other.
    33. 33. Best Practices for Permissions 1. Do not ask for permissions until proving some value. 2. Use images and a clear call to action to give users an idea of what they’ll gain by granting permissions.3. Do not ask for more permissions than necessary to provide the intended experience. 4. Always offer an alternative experience for users who do not authorize the app. 5. Use the “persistent ask” or “intermittent ask” methods.6. Thank users for authorizing the application and be clear about how their activity is being shared throughout the experience.
