Heads up! Facebook Roadblock up ahead!

Posted on 5/31/2011

If you're on the way of developing or already having Facebook Applications, a roadblock may be the best description of Facebook's latest change in its platfom policy.

FQL tip: AlbumID≠[aid], Facebook App Showcase

Secondly, there number of items returned is not limitted by default. Although it is possible to do these in the Graph Api, it is impractical to build these options into every api call in the library. However Facebook has weird integration between FQL and Graph Api. For example, if you want to query info about a photo ...
