Voice and messaging may be coming to more applications on Facebook and elsewhere on the mobile Web as cloud communications provider Twilio announced at its third annual TwilioCon in San Francisco that it updated its Cloud Code Module for Facebook-owned cloud-app platform Parse with an eye toward enabling developers to move in that direction.

So you remember a funny picture or a witty post from a Facebook friend, but you can’t recall when or which friend. Archify, which launched earlier this week, seeks to solve this problem by allowing users to easily search through their Facebook histories and see which of their friends and pages are the most active. Users can even access their Facebook histories from their Gmail accounts.
Brands on Facebook are always looking for new, efficient ways to connect with customers. CloudCraze, which recently released its 3.0 ecommerce platform, allows companies to use cloud technology to integrate Facebook actions into their sales sites, so users can like or share products that they purchase or enjoy.
