Facebook Tweaks Third-Party App Login Requests

Wochit 0:56 mins

Facebook rolled out changes to the way third-party apps request permissions of users when connecting to Facebook. Now, the app must request separate permission to "read" and use some of your Facebook information, as well as "write", or publish your app activity back to Facebook. BerryReview has noticed that around 48,000 apps available on BlackBerry World's mobile app store are sourced from a single developer. S4BB, a Hong Kong-based company that also provided Palm software for that company's PDAs back in the early days of mobile computing, is the prodigious company behind the massive catalogue, which includes such quality titles as "Theme," "Easy Smiley Pack," and "Search for Amazon."
