Javascript on Facebook

September 18, 2007ByMarcel Laverdet

Today we are moving Facebook Javascript (FBJS) out of beta and into version 1.0.

FBJS was built to empower you with the scripting functionality that you need to make your Facebook Platform applications more rich and interactive, while protecting Facebook users' privacy at the same time.

If you are already used to Javascript, you will find that most of the syntax and functionality that you have come to know and love (or hate) is available in FBJS. Additionally, we've created hooks into our higher-level AJAX and dialog implementations which allow you to easily create dynamic experiences while maintaining the look and feel of Facebook.

We hope that FBJS enables you to build deeply integrated Facebook Platform applications in new and interesting ways.

Happy Hacking!
