Today Facebook have rolled out their new App Center worldwide allowing all Facebook users to now benefit from the social networks online store for desktop and mobile applications.
Facebook’s App Center has been available since June in English speaking countries, including Australia, Canada, India, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, and the United Kingdom, and last week rolled out to Brazil, France, Germany, Russia, Spain, Taiwan and Turkey.
New Facebook users just receiving access to Facebook App Center, will now notice a new App Center bookmark situated on the left side of their Facebook.com homepage. Together with access to the store from mobile applications on both Android and iOS devices.
Facebook will now continue helping developers create new applications and websites that will be able to integrate into the Facebook platform. Allowing developers to generate revenue from the use of applications either through the use of advertising within the applications or purchases. Facebook explains:
“We have made and are continuing to make major investments to enable developers to build applications (apps) and websites that integrate with the Facebook Platform,” Facebook noted in the 10-Q, but also warned: “Developers may choose to build on other platforms, including mobile platforms controlled by third parties, rather than building on the Facebook Platform.”
