Social design is quickly becoming the norm for any successful app. Social Design is a way of thinking about product design that puts social experiences at the core. Create these social experiences with the features available on Facebook Platform.
Facebook today published the "Social Design Guidelines" on its Developer Site to help you understand why you should build great social experiences as well as how to use Facebook Platform effectively to create them.
"Social design is a product strategy that builds upon users' trusted communities, encourages conversation between them and ultimately creates a stronger sense of identity for everyone. By putting people at the center of the Web, more and more experiences that naturally happen in the real world are starting to happen online. As we design new products, we should take into account existing social truths, thinking carefully about the identities and respective communities we affect and building the best conversation tools for them," stated Eric Fisher on Developer blog.
"We will continue to develop these guidelines over time, build new features on Facebook Platform to help enable great social experiences, as well as publish related How-Tos to help you understand these principles as they apply to specific product verticals."
