Facebook App Center Now Live WorldwideBy: Josh Wolford - August 2, 2012
Less than two months after Facebook made its new App Center live for U.S. users, they have opened it up to everyone in the world.
We’ve been gradually rolling out the App Center to ensure a smooth transition for users and developers used to the old Apps and Games dashboard. Based on positive feedback from users and strong performance for developers, today we’re excited to make the App Center available to all Facebook users worldwide.
Facebook also updated the App Center’s Timeline to include the milestone.
Facebook’s App Center compiles and categorizes thousands of apps that use Facebook – both mobile and web. The apps are ranked and displayed based on user feedback, and Facebook has been clear that the App Center is no place for crappy apps (they won’t even make it on there). The App Center is also quite social, with recommendations based on friends’ app use.
The App Center went live for U.S. users on June 8th, and just one moth later began the global rollout by expanding the App Center to more English-speaking countries. Just last week, they made the App Center available in Brazil, France, Germany, Russia, Spain, Taiwan, and Turkey. Now, it’s available everywhere.
