When Facebook announced its timeline partners yesterday, there were many familiar names on the list. Some were especially familiar to us because, in addition to now adding their "actions" to Facebook, they also provide APIs to access data created by their users.

The exchange of data is an important part of moving forward the web as a platform. That means the data flows both directions. In the past Facebook has had issues with wanting to collect and harbor all the data, but that's changed with its Facebook Graph API. These above companies are similarly helping with the exchange of data by providing APIs for anyone to access.
