Facebook added seventeen more developers to to its preferred developer consultant program yesterday, bringing the current total to 64 — you can check out the full list here. We’ve picked out the new ones, below, including notes about companies that have been bought or changed names.

The list, for those not familiar, features “experienced developers who have built numerous Facebook integrations and offer solutions ranging from contests, polls and campaigns to deeply integrated social experiences,” according to Facebook’s program page. The application process, available here, requires developers to provide a variety details about themselves and their past work.

Here are some more quick notes on the program, before we get into the list. It accepts submissions in rounds — the latest one opened today and will end on March 31. Its last update was around a year ago, when the program added 36 additions, following the initial list in late 2009. In other developments, it also introduced a mapping feature last June to help interested clients find nearby consultants.

For those keeping track, also note that two companies that previously appeared on the list are now one: Syncapse bought Nudge last fall. Also, existing program participant Likeable Media changed its name from theKbuzz.
