While real time is in these days (had no better way to put it), Facebook is currently preparing to bring down the walls that confined developers within. The announcement will be to let third parties have access to the data given that users provide them with permission. This would let developers will have reach to the favorite videos and photos you upload. This might give the ever growing Facebook userbase a big boost. It will be interesting to see how Facebook heads on after breaking its closed methodology and adopting an open one.
