Facebook Markup Language will move one step closer to the history books with the start of the new year.
The social network announced in a post on its Developer Blog:
FBML will no longer be supported as of Jan. 1, 2012. Aside from security- and privacy-related bugs, we will not fix any bugs related to FBML after Jan. 1, 2012. On June 1, 2012, FBML endpoints will be removed from platform.
And the following note appears at the top of the Facebook Markup Language page:
The move is hardly a surprise, as Facebook announced in February that it was phasing out FBML and focusing on iFrames as part of the launch of its then-new page design.
Pages running FBML have still been functional, but Facebook also removed the ability to create new FBML apps or to add static FBML apps to pages in March.
