Facebook Updates it’s Developer Policies -> no links to our competitors.

| by tvTayber

Facebook regularly updates it’s developer policies and doesn’t tell anyone. Developers are expected to check in often to make sure they are in compliance. Today Facebook added a new item to the list under Features and Functionality:

Apps on Facebook may not integrate, link to, promote, distribute, or redirect to any app on any other competing social platform.

The update is most likely in response to the rise in other networks trying to acquire content from Facebook publishers. Networks like Tagged, hi5, Wildtangent and if the rumor mongers are slinging even half truths… Google+ are all competing to bring new content to their platform and publishers are always looking for a wider audience.

Developers should note that the update does not mention pushing traffic to a standalone site though, where developers presumably can direct players anyplace they like.
