Alex Stone, May 16th, 2011

Facebook GraphThe Facebook Graph API is great and in one year has thoroughly upgraded Facebook’s approach to its platform. The Graph API is much simpler than previous iterations of Facebook’s APIs and Connection methods. Of course, with the simplicity of the Graph API, it’s still easy to get overwhelmed by just how much information you can easily (with explicit and secure user permission, mind you) get access to and use in your apps. Facebook employee Simon Cross put together a handy Facebook Graph API Explorer to help you navigate the Graph API response content.

Daniel Luxemburg, March 25th, 2011

GowallaGowalla, the location-based social network, is beginning to establish itself as the most generously interoperable of its check-in–offering peers.

When asked by the moderator, Programmable Web Executive Editor Adam DuVander, “Can I download Gowalla’s data,” Raymond responded that providing the option was “definitely on the roadmap.”
