Facebook Wants Social Games Innovation [developers.facebook.com]
Today we’re announcing a series of changes designed to lay the foundation for further games innovation on Facebook. The updates are the first step toward a new platform infrastructure and APIs that will provide you with the tools to reach and engage the growing number of people who play games, and drive discovery among their friends.
Additionally, with these changes, we’re also simplifying our platform policies dramatically. We realize that detailed policies that spell out exactly what you can do and can’t do are hard for developers and simply add friction to the process of building on Facebook. With the changes we are making today, we are in a better position to eliminate many specific policies in favor of broader principles to ensure that applications respect user trust.

Not familiar with their old or current terms, but that doesn't sound too good. Does it mean more freedom for developers to abuse the personal data of FB users?
