On May 24, 2007, the world changed forever when Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced that Facebook was opening its platform, or “social graph,” to developers (see http://www.facebook.com/press/releases.php? p=3102). This update would allow developers to access a wealth of information, from names and birth dates to friend information and the ways that users link together. Never since the invention of the web browser has an API made such an impact on the world. For many, Facebook has become the web browser for the social Internet.
Each one of these aspects of the Facebook Platform could warrant its own book. FBML Essentials is intended to be your guide to perhaps the most important and basic component of the platform, FBML.
