All the more reason to shut down your Facebook account since dipping into your personal details via your friends accounts is a cornerstone of most apps and many are designed to separate you from your money.

Well, if you're a developer you'd want to be involved to take advantage of the opportunities.

I really do think FB is losing the plot. I and a lot of friends I know spend far less time there than we used to.
Most of the major grumblings began when they started forcing timeline on everyone.
I use it mainly as a personal address book. No need to necessarily go there but is good to know you can keep in touch with people even if they move, you lose your phone, backups etc. etc.

I agree, and that's the same for any business forcing changes on users/customers. It angers and frustrates, and users will vote with their feet.

Urk. It must have been in the works a while. Back when I tried to figure out what facebookplatform is,* I kept running into pages touting great new stuff for programmers. With accompanying rules about what you're not allowed to do-- just in case someone needed help figuring out the ways you can use your app to collect and store more information about more people. (Like those Prohibition-era packages of dried grapes: Do Not Do steps A, B and C in that order, because if you do, you will make wine, and that's illegal.)
* Apparent answer: the externalhotlink robot wearing different clothes-- and linking to a different set of information pages. For a given definition of "information". But it did provide me with a whole new batch of reading matter.
