worldwide prodigy with millions of users using Facebook and applications every

a wide range of applications already being used on Facebook and the possibilities
for new applications are limited only to the developer's imagination. Below stated
are some of the basics how to build a Facebook application:

have his or her Facebook account and then install the developer application.

applications. In addition, you'll need to secure yourself a server as Facebook
applications run form the developer's server. The benefit of this is that you can
write the application in whichever language you know best.

Essentially, the platform is made up of three parts: API, FBML, and FQL.

    FBML is the custom Facebook markup language which has basically
     modeled around HTML.
