A recent PC World article titled "As Facebook Service Goes, So Goes the Internet" scratched the surface of some inherent dangers of our increasingly interconnected Internet. By its very nature, the current generation of the internet is interconnected: "Web 2.0 is a loosely defined intersection of web application features that facilitate participatory information sharing, interoperability, user-centered design, and collaboration on the World Wide Web." The PC World article traced some problems that mere inclusion of a simple sharing interface can cause. When Facebook suffered a bad day, the top twenty news sites experienced load times of 12.5 seconds (compared to the usual 5-7 seconds). Top retail sites load times slowed to 5.7 seconds from the typical 2.2. seconds. All of this dragging because of a poorly performing "Like" button at a Facebook data center? This could have much larger implications for companies that are inherently reliant on data from external sources (e.g. websites pulling third-party data via APIs).
Facebook announced v2.6 of the Graph API. The version updates a number of Facebook services including Messenger, Facebook Live, Reactions, Video, Rights Manager, Facebook Ads, and Sharing across devices. As the backbone of Facebook's developer platform, Graph API updates draw much attention.
Here at ProgrammableWeb, we love using mashups and APIs to help make our lives better in many ways. Just as mashups can take multiple APIs and piece something new together, you can do that with multiple mashups. For example, let's say we're going to host a party. Well, we'd need music, food, other entertainment and a way to connect people together. The mashups listed below can help you with all of this.
