    Easy Facebook applications with Player.IO

    Hey Flashkit

    I am proud to announce that we just released yet another Player.IO feature called Sitebox. Sitebox allows you to build fully featured websites and Facebook applications without having to worry about servers, hosting etc.

    The system differentiates itself from other services that promises to put your game on Facebook by being completely open ended. You have control over everything, the html, the design, the application structure etc. Additionally it allows you to do deep integrations, giving you the opportunity to reward users for sharing the application and inviting friends.

    As with all our services Sitebox is tightly integrated with our other offerings such as our hosted Multiplayer service, our hosted database solution BigDB and GameFS file and asset hosting.

    Building a socially integrated Facebook game might seem like a lot of work so we build a fairly complex example game called Seedlings to help people get started. You can try seedlings here: http://apps.facebook.com/seedlings/. The entire game is released under a completely open license, including all source and graphics.

    A video tutorial of how to get started with GameFS and the Seedlings game can be seen here: http://playerio.com/showcase/seedlings-sitebox-example/ (Might take a bit to start showing the video)

    I personally used the Sitebox solution to make a Facebook application for Everybody Edits in a day. The Facebook application can be seen here: http://apps.facebook.com/everedits/

    Quick update to say that we also released an open source AS3 implementation of the Facebook Graph API, it's a lot easier to work with than the REST based API provided by Adobe.

    hi Q-Rious,

    My experience with Facebook applications is really bad - a nightmare.
    Things work one week, stop working the next.
    Things work for one person, fail for ten...
    Really frustrating.

    The mention of the Open Source AS3 library called my attention. Thanks for sharing!
    Do you have a tutorial or example? So that one would know where to start?
    That would be great.

    Kind regards,
    Nuno Mira

    We share that experience, which is why we build our framework. Allows us to fix all ours and your Facebook apps at once when Facebook breaks something!

    The best example / tutorial we have is Seedlings.
    Video intro - http://playerio.com/showcase/seedlings-sitebox-example/

    You can download the source code for that game as part of our developer package: http://playerio.com/download/
