Today Dapper is launching a private beta of Facebook AppMaker, a new
tool that the company claims will provide people with a dead simple
way to create new Facebook applications.
From the TechCrunch review:
"At its core, Dapper allows users to create API’s called “Dapps” by
selecting data from Websites, RSS/XML feeds, Google Gadgets, and
more. Each “Dapp” is an XML which can be manipulated in any number of
ways. The company released a tool to create Netvibes modules in late
Dapper’s Facebook AppMaker lets these Dapps be transformed into full-
blown Facebook applications. This includes functionalities such as
remote search and retrieval, remote login, and multi-page apps. A
Facebook Developer account is a prerequisite to the AppMaker process
The test app I created was an effortless process: I created a Dapp,
entered it in the AppMaker wizard, entered the appropriate Facebook’s
API/Secret keys, saved and installed. While creating a Dapp was not a
sophisticated process on Dapper’s side, it certainly could be more
intuitive. I found the Facebook side of the process to require a
higher degree of technological aptitude."
Christina, I re-read your question. Out of curiosity...
Are you Designing an application?
Developing within Facebook?
The semantic point I'm stuck on is how one 'designs' -for- an
autonomous social application framework, as opposed to a user.
Do social networks dream of virtual persona's?
