Want to know more about what’s going on with Facebook’s Preferred Marketing Developer program? Now you can.

Facebook opened up two groups previously only available to PMD members: PMD News and FB Marketing Technology Dev Community. The privacy has gone from closed to open, but with an application process. This is for those who work with or are somehow affiliated with Facebook PMD.

When Facebook announces changes to PMDs, the announcements will also be posted to the group.

Facebook’s Christine Lu posted about the change:

In the spirit of being open and connected, today we’re opening up the FB Marketing Technology Dev Community group publicly. This group caters towards any developer using any of our marketing APIs, and we’ve seen that it’s been a helpful channel for developers to lean on each other.

We’ll continue posting guides, product updates, and other technical information to the group. We hope that a broader audience will be able to benefit from it and we encourage you to continue using each other for development discussions.

A similar message from Lu was posted in the PMD News group.
