Its app-tastic. The Social Network has gone all app-y opening its very own hub which lets you get social with Angry Birds, Pinterest & Co.
Facebook’s App Center now instantly brings you every social app from Angry Birds, Instagram and Words With Friends, letting users play games with friends.
When Facebookers click into an app at the Centre, they can see who among their friends is already using the app, and also has “recommended” ones based on other mates usage and other apps used recently.
The app tool also lets Facebook engage in more social interaction with other users.

The App Center features mobile and web apps and new titles including Jetpack Joyride, Ghosts of Mistwood, and Ghost Recon Commander.
Apps are also ranked by rating and trending. And lets not forget Facebook gets a cut of all in-app purchases.
And the network has inserted clever buttons ‘Send To Mobile” or “Play” which send your “basic information” to the app owners including e-mail address in some cases, in return for giving users access to the app.
And in the case of the Instagram, it may post images on your behalf.
This means you may have to forego some privacy in order to get social.
