10 Useful Facebook Apps

Facebook.com has arguably become the most popular, best enjoyed and celebrated social networking website of current times. The reasons may vary from people to people on why is it so popular some may say the finely tuned easy to use layout, some may add the wealth of applications available for almost everything and all other reasons. But I say it’s the API of facebook that has provoked developers to show their web programming skills and develop an application for a web application (or a website) that is the 7th most visited website according to Alexa.com. So if you want to attract instant visitors to your website then develop a facebook app and see the difference.
