Facebook Open Graph Momentum

It's been an exciting 24 hours for social application developers. A week ago, Facebook and Heroku announced a partnership to make it incredibly easy to get a live Facebook app running on Heroku. Yesterday at f8, Facebook unveiled the Timeline and the next generation of social apps on the Open Graph, with support for actions and objects.

The response has been amazing, and Heroku has seen more than 33,800 new apps created via Facebook in the last 24 hours; that's more than 20 a minute. Facebook has again innovated and captured the excitement of the developer community.

To help developers understand and become productive with new Open Graph features, Facebook posted a great screencast this morning. Check it out and learn how to build the next generation of Open Graph apps.

Today Heroku is at the Facebook f8 Hack event, hanging out with a few hundred developers who are banging out new apps on Heroku. We can't wait to see what amazing apps come out of it.
