The methods as easy to understand as possible.What is the Facebook API?The Facebook API is a web service which provides a way for external applications toaccess Facebook content on behalf of Facebook members.
The Facebook API can be used to create or enhance both web and desktop applications.How does the API key system work?The API key uniquely identifies your application and is sent on every request made to the Facebook API server. This includesthe initial user redirect to the Facebook login page, and subsequent requests to obtain Facebook information related to thatuser. This is essentially the developer application's unchanging public key.What languages does the Facebook API support?The API currently exchanges data over a REST-based protocol. Developer applications send text data in a POST request to theFacebook API server, and the server responds with data according to a proprietary XML schema. Developers may use any programming language to deliver these POST requests and read the responses, though we may provide sample client librariesin some common programming languages to aid developers.What is REST?REST stands for Representational State Transfer.

 Product Directory
Many users may find your application by browsing the Facebook Application Directory. Thisis where beautiful imagery and concise, descriptive text pay off.
 
 About 
The about page tells users about the application and is accessed from the Facebook Application Directory. It should inspire users to install the application.
