Facebook: Data block for Replication

After cutting off data access for Wonder, a social search app from Russian search engine Yandex, Facebook explained today that if you’re building an app that “replicates” its “core functionality,” its data is not for granted

“For … apps that are using Facebook to either replicate our functionality or bootstrap their growth in a way that creates little value for people on Facebook, such as not providing users an easy way to share back to Facebook, we’ve had policies against this that we are further clarifying today,” wrote Justin Osofsky, Facebook’s director of platform partnerships and operations, in a blog post.

The company’s new Platform Policy section 1.10 now reads:

“Reciprocity and Replicating core functionality: (a) Reciprocity: Facebook Platform enables developers to build personalized, social experiences via the Graph API and related APIs. If you use any Facebook APIs to build personalized or social experiences, you must also enable people to easily share their experiences back with people on Facebook. (b) Replicating core functionality: You may not use Facebook Platform to promote, or to export user data to, a product or service that replicates a core Facebook product or service without our permission.”
