Open Facebook

Lots of talk about Facebook this week. As some of you may have heard, they’re opening their application as a platform for development. One blogger summed it as “a social networking operating system”. I guess the question is why? Does it really help to promote Facebook or would resources just be better served by doing something else? Just how scalable is the Facebook architecture to begin with? Can their webservices handle multiple/simultaneous requests for instance? What about privacy issues? What kinds of user data are they exposing?
