The Facebook Platform

Standard

FacebookThe Facebook Platform is going to revolutionize social networks. Where MySpace is tightening restrictions on users and the applications they can use, Facebook is opening themselves up for use with all sorts of applications. This can’t be good news for any of the social networks that are similar to the MySpace model, and yeah I’m talking ’bout Virb as well.

Your Facebook profile is now a hub for all of your online data. With Applications, you can pull in your latest diggs, bookmarks, and much, much more. In fact, I believe they’ve only begun to scratch the surface of the capabilities of Facebook Applications. It’s only going to be a matter of time before users start doing everything through the site. (That in and of itself is a scary thought.) For Facebook, it’s definitely a win. The more people that see and use the site, the more revenue they make off of advertising and user data… For application builders, it’s a win as well…

Are you on Facebook? Let’s network.
