Facebook: Accessing Graph API

Facebook has a huge store of information, on people, companies, events, photo albums, and more. It also knows how all of these are linked: which person owns each album; which people appear in each photo; which company is organizing each event.

For four years, this was accessed using a huge, sprawling API, which got more complex as new abilities were bolted on to it. In April 2010, Facebook launched the Graph API, greatly simplifying how developers can retrieve all of this data.
