Facebook Platform!

May 25th, 2007 Comments Off on Facebook Platform!

I’m pretty excited about the Facebook Platform which was announced yesterday. It goes beyond just “widgets.” It lets you create modules (“Facebook applications”) that run right inside of Facebook. They have access to the user’s data, if users consent to it. Apps can have a box on the user’s profile page, as well as having their own dedicated pages.

The obvious first thing I will try is putting my adoptable pets into Facebook profiles. However, I also would like to create apps that use the Facebook data more deeply. I wonder if someone has already created a “TOP 8 FRIENDS”-type module, a la MySpace ;) If not, I may take a stab at it just for learning purposes.
