Platform Updates: Requests, Open Graph Types and More

New Requests Education
As part of our ongoing efforts to educate users on the new home for requests, we have reintroduced games and apps request links on the right side of the homepage. These links will trigger a dialog to educate users that they can now access their requests in the games and application dashboards. This is one of the many new initiatives we are testing to drive more usage of requests and the dashboards.

Ability to change Open Graph types
Based on feedback from developers, we now allow sites to change Open Graph objects types (og:type) until they receive 10,000 likes. This will not reset like counts. We encourage developers use this opportunity to add or correct their Open Graph object types so they will be accurately represented in the future.
