Last week, Facebook launched the HTML5 Resource Center for helping you build, test, and deploy your app. In addition, the company has also created a Facebook Group simply called HTML5 where you can get help from, or offer help to, your fellow developers.
In particular, Facebook wants Web apps to take advantage of existing social channels, namely the world's largest social network. Developers can target Facebook's 800 million active users and counting on the desktop, and as of last week, Facebook's 350 million mobile active users and counting.
"Today almost every device, including phones, tablets, computers, and even TVs has a browser," a Facebook spokesperson said in a statement. "Developers relying on HTML5 benefit from working with a single codebase that can run on all of these devices, so they build once and deploy everywhere within a minimal amount of changes for each device. Many developers, including Facebook, are using HTML5 in their mobile products, as it makes reaching users across many different devices simpler. The web already allows developers to create great apps and things are advancing rapidly. We hope these new HTML5 resources help accelerate the rate of innovation and improve the user experience of web apps."
