Facebook is beginning to realize that “poking” just isn’t as cool as it used to be, and has enlisted the help of others through the implementation on an API.
Whats an API?Â For the technical version visit Wikipedia.Â But the basic version is that essentially anybody has access to the stuff that makes Facebook tick and can develop third party applications for Facebook.
So far the only application made is FaceBank, a budgeting tracking tool.
Either way, if you are handy with code. head on over to the developer section.Â And you can bet I’ll keep you guysÂ abreast of some of the cooler apps.
Facebook also added the ability to create “badges”.Â Just look below your profile picture for a link that says “Create a Profile Badge”.Â You will be then taken to this screen:
You can create your own using as many elements as you’d like,Â or you can use template provided.
Thanks very much to Vivianne for the tip!Â And if your bored, link your badge below.
