The promise of Facebook is simple: a unified social network, with a brilliantly developed application platform, which counts almost everyone you know as a member. The Facebook Platform offers developers an opportunity to build applications, which leverage a well- developed toolkit with the potential to reach tens of millions of users around the world. The missing element for a lot of Platform novices is the strategy involved in designing successful applications, the need to architect for very sudden scaling challenges, and the ability to design with the costs of hosting and deployment in mind. This book will solve both problems by providing easy to follow recipes that will help developers to strategize and design their application, determine the ideal Facebook integration points to leverage, architect and build their application, and market it in an increasingly competitive marketplace.
