Came across this story via techcrunch. Facebook now has open stream API’s, similar to how Twitter has developed their API’s and let it loose into the developer community. I’ve seen two instances of cool facebook API integrations today. I’m using Seesmic desktop and got the email update this morning and it was one of the top trending topics on twitter. Check out the facebook API using microsoft silverlight – its very cool!
With Seesmic, the facebook integration is something that I’ve always wanted. A way for facebook to dynamically update using Adobe AIR. In the past, i’ve often found myself refreshing the page to find out there’s new updates. Now, I can just use facebook via Seesmic desktop. I’ve been using it for the past couple of hours since it was announced. Although they say that there is “full integration with the feed”, you can’t respond to status updates (i.e. comment). All u can do at the moment is check the “like” box. if you want to comment, it opens up a new window in your browser and may need to login again. Which is annoying.
I’m out like the old facebook,
