Introducing the Facebook Platform

  • Wayne Graham

Abstract

When I first started writing the Facebook API Developer’s Guide back in 2007, I was contending with two big issues. First, the documentation for everything was spotty at best. The engineers at Facebook had put up a wiki, which at the time was mostly just an outline naming the different methods available. The real reason for this was the second issue I had to deal with, the application programming interface (API) was changing on an almost weekly basis. In fact, large portions of the example code I wrote for that book had to be scrapped as different pieces of the API were significantly changed, or worse, silently dropped.
