At the f8 conference, Monica Keller of Facebook talked over twitter about how developers of Facebook applications may not have to delete user data when using their applications. The CEO of Gnip (a company specializing in collecting relevant data) asked Facebook about allowing offline data and Keller responded simply “come to f8!”.
You may be asking why this is relevant to how you play games or work with the Facebook applications available. Well, quite simply this would be a policy change for Facebook and could result in some more robust uses of the application system currently in place. Of course, this is all just rumor and we’ll have to wait for an official announcement from Facebook themselves to take the speculation even further.
