Facebook, while initially starting out as simply a social network, has developed over the years into a fully functional app-development platform.  In addition to allowing developers to integrate with Facebook users’ online data, the platform can be leveraged to take advantage of the social graphs and relationships between users.  Through the Open Graph protocol, social-focused applications can create completely new paradigms of interaction between users.  In addition to helping rapidly grow an app’s user base, the Open Graph technology can be used to create new visualizations and interactions between users and their social networks.

There are two primary platforms for Facebook development – the Iframe-hosted container for integrated third-party applications, and the Facebook mobile UI framework.  While the Iframe-hosted container provides the most flexibility, the mobile framework has been increasingly gaining popularity.  Since 2013, the number of mobile users on Facebook has exceeded desktop users, and the trend is only continuing to grow.  As a result, targeting the mobile framework may be the most ideal, depending on the app’s target user base and application.

In addition to utilizing the Facebook data, the actual authentication method behind Facebook can be used to provide a seamless and trusted login to a third-party website.  By using Facebook Connect to log in to a website, development is simplified through less authentication and account maintenance code, while users can often appreciate not needing to create a separate profile to use the site.  In addition, the ratio of fake user accounts and fake user information is much lower when using Facebook Connect, compared with traditional website-based authentication.
