Finding Development Help on Facebook

Part of the Facebook Application Development For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Finding help on Facebook can often be a difficult task. If you're a social strategist at a large organization, chances are you have an account rep at Facebook that can help you when you run into problems. However, most people don't have access to these types of resources. Here is a list of resources that can help you when you find yourself in a pickle:

  • The Facebook Developer Forum: Here you can ask questions of other developers on Facebook. This should always be one of your first destinations when you have questions or run into a problem. Frequently, Facebook employees also monitor this forum and will occasionally chime in to help.

  • The Facebook Group for Facebook Application Development For Dummies: Here is a Facebook Group you can go to and ask questions of other developers also reading the book. Here you can ask questions in an even more intimate environment.

  • The Facebook Page for Facebook Application Development For Dummies: This can be a great resource to subscribe and get updates when new Facebook news comes out, or when information in the book has been updated. Be sure to click "like" on this page to subscribe and get updates in your News Feed.

  • Contact Facebook: Believe it or not, you can contact Facebook. They often require a couple of weeks, but they do respond to questions and issues. To try contacting them, just go here and fill out the form.

  • Facebook's Help Documentation: Go here to find all sorts of documentation and answers to the most common problems on Facebook. Search carefully here, as there's a good chance your question has been answered before.

  • Comments in Facebook's Documentation: In some of Facebook's developer documentation pages, they allow comments at the bottom of the documentation. These areas can be invaluable if you have a question about the specific content of the documentation. Ask your questions there and see if you get an answer, either from a Facebook employee or another savvy developer.
