Let's Get Friendly
About the Client
Segue was approached by an entrepreneur with the desire to develop an application to integrate with Facebook. Their idea was to create a tool which allows people interested in developing romantic relationships to determine whether or not there is mutual interest within their existing Facebook friends. “Let’s Get Friendly” allows you to anonymously tag a friend as someone you’d like a deeper relationship with. The rest is up to them! If they do the same to you, only then will you be notified that you’re like minded in taking things further.
Working with Facebook’s API can be a difficult proposition. First, there are a number of restrictions on how your application can interact with Facebook and its users. Secondly, there are frequent changes and updates to Facebook’s platform. The changes to privacy settings are well-known, but there are several tweaks to existing technical capabilities that can have dramatic impacts on the functionality of any application designed to integrate with the API.
