Facebook has set up guidelines for app programmers on Facebook Platform. Here, Ben Ling, director of platform management for Facebook, said the social network is trying to weed out spammy applications that annoy people. The word behind Ling is "Transparent."

Last year, Facebook changed the social networking game by unveiling its Facebook Platform, which allowed programmers to build fun applications such as Slide and SuperPoke that occupy the time of Facebook's more than 90 million users. At this year's F8 Conference, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg took the next step with Facebook Connect, a service that lets users move their Facebook data to third-party Web sites. The following images capture the essence of the event at the San Francisco Design Center on July 23.
