Is there anything Facebook can't or won't do to keep its massive user base happy?
The social network giant just announced plans for a new Facebook App Store where Facebook friends can purchase games and other applications on its heavily trafficked site.
The new Facebook App Store, which will be formally known as the Facebook App Center, will feature applications for web browsers, and be available via the Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) iPhone, Android smartphones, PCs and tablets.
The move will provide a platform for software developers to sell their products on the social site.
With over 900 million users worldwide, the new Facebook App Center opens up an alluring venue for developers and entices the social networking Web site's scores of members to keep coming back for new, current and popular applications.
Facebook's App Store is being launched in the midst of the company's highly anticipated, much-hyped initial public offering, expected on or around May 18.
And the Facebook App Store in not merely in the works, it is set to roll out in the next few weeks.
