A few days after social network site Facebook opened its platform to third-party sites, iLike, a popular music sharing site has scored 723,936 users on Facebook. It is by far the most popular application. We interviewed iLike chief executive, Ali Partovi. He compares Facebook’s platform to the web itself.
VB: Tell me about your experiences with Platform so far. You’ve been working on putting iLike on Facebook for several months now. Yet on the integration since Friday morning, there have been bugs and other issues on iLike’s end. What’s the status? Do you have enough servers now?
AP: So, first to give you the back-story on how we got involved: Over the past several months, we’ve pushed and pushed with Facebook asking for some sort of exclusive relationship.
