Custom Open Graph Actions That Auto-Post Content Are No Longer Welcomed On Facebook

Custom Open Graph Actions That Auto-Post Content Are No Longer Welcomed On Facebook | Social Reading | Scoop.it
Open graph actions have been a boon to Facebook so far, driving engagement while increasing clicks and likes. However not all of the actions have been positive, such as auto-posted actions.
Daphne Christoforidou's insight:

Items that auto-post consumed content that aren’t a standard action have showed a lower quality experience and will will be going the way of the Dinosaur. Facebook will be axing all actions outside of an approved core that auto-post when the content is consumed.

"..those apps that auto-post on your friends wall will be killed off."


Those Facebook posts with image-led stories have seen 70% more clicks and up to 50x more likes than from previous story types. The new location display (seen above) have also showed “double-digit” gains in distribution.

The “Pinterestization” of Facebook continues.
Daphne Christoforidou's insight:

There’s also a bigger emphasis on apps as sources of self expression. App-based custom collections (movies, books, images, check-ins, etc.) will now be stand-alone sections on users’ About/profile pages.

Facebook Graph Search - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Facebook Graph Search is a semantic search engine that was introduced by Facebook in March 2013. It is designed to give answers to user natural language queries rather than a list of links.[1] The Graph Search feature combines the big data acquired from its over one billion users and external data into a search engine providing user-specific search results. In a presentation headed by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, it was announced that the Graph Search algorithm finds information from within a user's network of friends. Additional results will be provided by Microsoft's Bing search engine.[2]

The feature was developed under former Google employees Lars Rasmussen and Tom Stocky.[3]

The Graph Search Features was launched in Beta January 2013 as a limited preview for some English users in the United States.[4][5] Company reports indicate that the service launched to between tens and hundreds of thousands of users.

the older "News Feed module" drove growth to apps like Post's Social Reader

The newer News Feed module "Trending Articles" is more modest and seems to account for the decline in app usage

Facebook’s frictionless sharing mistake

Facebook’s frictionless sharing mistake | Social Reading | Scoop.it
It has been a year since Facebook opened the gates for developers to create Open Graph applications with custom verbs and a new way for users to share their app activity through Timeline, Ticker and News Feed.
Daphne Christoforidou's insight:

Open Graph is the way that Facebook organizes the information and connections on its platform. When the social network began, users could only connect with other users. With the introduction of the Open Graph protocol in 2010, users became able to connect with objects on Facebook and around the web by clicking Like. By adding a bit of code to their sites, publishers could turn any webpage into a Facebook object.

 

In 2011, Facebook expanded Open Graph to allow users to connect to objects with new verbs besides Like. These include read, watch, listen and play. Similar to how developers can create objects, they can now create actions. An Open Graph app is any Facebook canvas app, mobile app or website that has integrated “actions” as a means for users to share their activity back on Facebook.
