Facebook Updates Open Graph Application Checklist

Facebook added to the checklist for open graph applications originally published on its developer blog late last month; the social network clarified one requirement, added another, and spelled out a way for developers to review their submissions.

Facebook added to the checklist for open graph applications published on the developer blog late last month.

The social network clarified one requirement, added another, and spelled out a way for developers to review their submissions.

In a new post on its developer blog, the social network reiterated the need for specific instructions to accompany action items in apps, saying that after clicking submit:

The first step requires you to outline concise, step-by-step usage instructions to trigger the action. Provide the necessary information (including URLs to staged apps, login details, navigation steps, button/link clicks, etc.) in English for our team of reviewers to reproduce the actions in your app.

Facebook also addressed the use of optional properties such as user messages, tagging, and user photos; for all of these areas, developers must meet the requirements outlined in the site’s documentation, and provide detailed reproduction steps.

And the final step added by Facebook allows developers to review their submissions one last time, as well as to track the status of submissions, with Facebook adding that developers will be notified via email if there are any changes to their action status.
