Facebook's New App Center

Facebook has recently announced a new App Center, an online marketplace like iTunes or Google Play.

This should be a big hit with average users, as we all know, tracking down Facebook apps was never an easy process. We often relied on friends and family to recommend certain apps.  Now everything will be centralized, easily-accessible, and organized. Even better, App Center will also allow users to get to know an app before it's installed.

Every app must have an 'app detail page,' designed to let us 'see what makes an app unique' before installing and accessing it,"

Developers will have a range of tools at their disposal – which should help companies improve or streamline their products. Facebook will also use a variety of indicators, such as user ratings and engagement, to determine if an app is listed in the App Center.

So watch for this new offering from Facebook.  Enjoy it, but a word of warning, be careful not don't spend any more time on Facebook than you already do.
