SpeedDate Gets Shut Down Temporarily, Developers Get Nervous

Yesterday Facebook shut down a fourth application in its continuing campaign against applications violating their terms of service. What exactly has been violated is not clear. One strategy used by the SpeedDate application was to purchase other applications and proceed to switch each application to be a duplicate of the original SpeedDate application. The result was that some users would be surprised when one of their applications had now switched their profile to show something related to SpeedDating.
