Facebook designer Rob Goodlatte and some other Facebook designers and developers recently developed Facebook.me. It is a Facebook’s new Open Graph API where Facebook users can export their Facebook data like updates, links, photos etc.
It means Facebook users can turn their profile into a mini-blog and that is for free by connecting their account with Facebook.me. You can also have a option to choose from 3 pre-defined themes to display your profile content.
Let’s See How It Works
First of all, visit Facebook.me home page and click on “Connect to Facebook”. By doing this, you will be connected to your Facebook account.
After connecting to your facebook account, you have to allow the application to publish posts, comments, photos, videos and other items. Just click on “Allow publishing” and you are done. All your Facebook wall contents are updated into Facebook.me.
One disadvantage of Facebook.me is that you don’t have the options to customize what you want to show here. Well, as this is just released, we might be able to see customization options in future. Now, it’s time to play with pre-defined themes.
Some Disadvantages of Facebook.me
- No Customization / Filter updates possible
- Vanity URL is not supported
- News Feed is not real time
Well, as this is just released, there are some disadvantages or lacking points while using Facebook.me. But, if they solve these minor bugs, I believe that Facebook.me will become cool application for creative artists, musicians or photographers to show their portfolio in a astonishing style without spending a penny.
Now, it’s your turn to tell us what do you think about the Facebook’s new Open Graph API ? Are you going to use this application ? Do share your views with us in comments section below.
