Last night I decided to take a look at the Bebo platform documentation. Not surprisingly, much of the code resembles the Facebook API. Much of this may be due to Bebo licensing Facebook’s platform. While I haven’t spoken with Bebo’s team to confirm my suspicions, whether or not Bebo has licensed Facebook’s platform is not what’s important here. What is important is that FBML and FQL may actually have transformed to become the defacto standard for social network programming.
