The most popular social networking site on a global scale, Facebook is trying to welcome developers by keeping some of the core floodgates open so that they get familiar with the system in a better way. If you remember well, most of the recent changes in Facebook has brought about agitation from the Facebook crowd. Be it the designs or the disclaimer statements, Facebook hasn’t been too comfortable in announcing them. Now this may just be the chance to allure developers -> thereby making more apps -> pulling more crowd in with more faciltiies. Quite a similarity to iPhone app market model, no?
As Reuters suggests,
the company is expected to announce the plans on Monday. The new capabilities would let third-party developers build services that access content uploaded by Facebook users such as pictures and videos with the users’ permission. it does not plan to charge for the service.
So, we will be really interested to see to what extent will this impact the Facebook crowd.
