Facebook announced a change in how bookmarks for applications will be displayed, saying in a post on its developer blog that only games that work on both the social network’s canvas and mobile will appear on mobile bookmarks, starting June 5.
Facebook may have a tricky relationship with HTML5, but it still wants developers all over the Web to learn how to use it efficiently. The social network recently partnered with Web giants such as Microsoft, Google, and Adobe to form WebPlatform.org — a one-stop shop for information and support regarding HTML5, CSS, Canvas, and several other platforms.
Facebook moved a couple of settings around for easier access by developers, announcing that its sandbox mode, which allows developers to test their applications, was moved from the advanced section to the basic section, and its canvas height and canvas width fields were similarly moved from the advanced section to the app on Facebook part of the basic section.
Developers, take note: The default migration of all pages to timeline at the end of the month doesn’t automatically upgrade canvas applications into the new format.
Timeline pages don’t eliminate tabs. They’ve simply relocated, have more space and are now called apps.
