A few Facebook updates:
- Inspired by a post I did a few weeks ago on Using Facebook in Your Nonprofit, Soha El-Borno of Wild Apricot has written a Beginner's Guide to Facebook, complete with graphics. If you're thinking about getting started with Facebook, this may be the kickstart you need.
- The big Facebook story this week is their decision to allow outside developers to write programs on top of the Facebook technology platform, similar to the way that software companies can write programs that work in Microsoft Windows. This could have huge implications for Facebook users and create some really interesting opportunities for innovation. Beth Kanter's NPTech summary for Friday includes some links to info on this development (scroll down a few paragraphs). You might also want to check out Money Magazine's article on the plan. This will definitely be something to keep an eye on in the coming months.
