We all know Facebook is a massive database providing a wide variety of information about hundreds of millions of people, and the Facebook app has been tremendously popular on the app store.

Accessing the “Facebook Social Graph” can be done through the Facebook graph API, Facebook Connect was provided to give developers the ability to connect their apps with the Facebook database, but pales in comparison to the Facebook Graph API.
