Facebook To Open Source Facebook Platform

I saw this the other day posted on TechCrunch by Michael Arrington, great news for the most part in my opinion! The only thing that kind of perplexes me is that every time someone like facebook opens up their code base it requires you (the developer) to learn yet another set of platform languages (i.e. FMBL, FQL, FJS in facebook’s case). For those that have the patients to learn and build upon them the sky is the limit, but it would sure be nice if there were a more standard way of opening services like this up. It seems like we are heading down the same road as when the web concept first took off.

Sometime soon, perhaps this week, Facebook will turn the year-old Facebook Platform into an open source project, multiple sources have told us. The immediate effect will be to allow any social network to become Facebook Platform compatible – meaning application developers can easily take their Facebook applications and have them run on those social networks, too.
