New to the Facebook Platform?
Facebook offers tools, services and SDKs to developers who want to integrate social experiences into their apps. Whether or not your app is on iOS, Android, mobile web or desktop web, Facebook offers tools to make integration easy. We've also partnered with other companies to make it easy to integrate on other major platforms as well. Creating social experiences lets your app be part of a person's identity while helping to grow your app's audience base, and it lets you deliver great advertising experiences both in and out of your app.
If you're new to the Facebook Platform read our Overview of the Facebook Platform. It covers the reasons to build with Facebook, the APIs we offer and the other services we offer to developers. If you're confused about some of the terms used on this site, read our glossary of terms.
