SocialTimes Facebook

The second inflection point came when Facebook expanded API access to its ads marketplace, at first via a limited beta in 2009, and later formalized into the ads API program in August 2011.

This creates fragmentation in both work flow and data management, not to mention unnecessary fees. remember the first—the launch of Facebook Platform  May 24, 2007–like it was yesterday.
