Stream Publishing API Now Open to All Developers

facebook platform developersGood news for those developers who’ve been waiting to use the announced stream publishing API: the method no longer requires acceptance to Facebook’s white list for use with the general Facebook public.

The stream.publish API call allows an application to publish updates directly into a given user’s stream automatically once given permission. Previously, while the API call was in beta, developers were required to apply to be accepted onto the white list if they wanted to use the call beyond developers of their application.

Facebook hasn’t officially announced that the feature is out of beta – however, the white list requirement has been removed from the Developer Wiki page, and we can confirm that applications in general are now able to publish to any user which has authorized the application to do so.
