Report: Facebook’s App Center Goes Global

Facebook’s app center is now available in every country throughout the world where the social network is available, according to a report in TechCrunch.

TechCrunch received a tip from a reader in Finland that app center was live in that country, and when it asked Facebook for comment, it received the following response via email:

The app center went global overnight, so it is now live in Finland. This is live everywhere now.

Facebook officially launched the application discovery portal in the U.S. June 7, followed by rollouts in seven countries (Australia, Canada, India, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, and the U.K.) July 9, and in seven more countries (Brazil, France, Germany, Russia, Spain, Taiwan, and Turkey) July 25.
