Facebook’s decision to kill notifications has had lasting effects on developers, effectively killing most virality for the application Platform (although there are still plenty of applications growing through feed optimization). The other major change that developers have been preparing for is the shift of requests from the homepage to the inbox. Now Facebook has updated the Developer Roadmap, stating that the requests “will be transitioned to a new notification area”.
What that new notification area will look like is unknown, however developers are definitely on edge as the last viral channel is being moved to a new place.
