  • Facebook Development, in general
    April 2010: Graph API released
    The “walled garden” is a bit more open now, this is a more semantic web
    Privacy concerns are running wild in the media
    ….With good reason, Facebook is catering to businesses and ad dollars
    It’s like working with a team of other developers who you can’t see, can’t communicate with, and who don’t do QA
    “There is no real Facebook dev documentation. Anything that appears to be documentation should actually be labeled ‘Clues’”

  • Examples, Object
  • Facebook is now aware of your object
    Object is similar to a Page in Facebook, but exists on your site
    Enables future messaging “by” the object
    “When publishing, use only the 'voice' of the object. For example, if users are liking an actor in a TV show, that actor should publish stories about themselves, not general information on the show, or the TV network.”
