“Are you an experienced developer who wants to get started in the world of Facebook development? If you are, then this (webcast and) book are for you. Author Jesse Stay, has done an outstanding job of writing a book that is intended to be your guide to perhaps the most important and basic components of the platform: FBML,” said John R. Vacca, Tech Write independent reviewer.

“Since its inception, Facebook has been a cultural phenomenon. Dozens, maybe even hundreds, of Facebook-like sites have sprung up in a very short time,” said Dr. Tami Brady, whole health therapist. “To say the least, social networking has changed the way that we use our computers and the way we spend our free time. I began reading the material but quickly decided to play around a bit. Very quickly, I began seeing how I could create my own applications using this information.”
