Facebook Launches App Center with Personalized Recommendations

Facebook last night (June 7) began rolling out its App Center, filled with personal recommendations for both Web and mobile apps. In all, 600 social apps are available and they’re all free. 
 
You’ll recognize all the big names — Pinterest, Instagram, Viddy — but the new center makes it easy to discover apps you might not know about. How about Wattpad — a social hub for budding novelists or Postagram that turns your Facebook photos into postcards and takes care of the mailing for you.
 
The app center presents personal recommendations based on the apps you use and those that your friends have downloaded. You can see who’s using what app in the list that appears under each app listing. Below those two sections, Facebook shows the most used and highest rated apps, along with your friends who are using them. At the moment, Pinterest tops the list, followed by Draw Something and Instagram. [6 Tips to Use Instagram Like a Pro ]
 
But perhaps the most interesting section are the “Timeline Apps” — all the apps that will post directly to your Timeline such as Spotify, Foursquare and Muzy, a collage-maker for photos. [New Facebook Rules Cut ‘Surprise Sharing’ by Apps ]
 
Ready to play? Go to www.facebook.com/appcenter on your computer. Alternately, App Center is available on mobile via the Facebook apps for iOS and Android, or by accessing Facebook.com on your phone’s browser. You can also send apps you find on your computer to your mobile device using the “Send to Mobile” feature.  If a mobile app requires a download, you’ll be sent to install it from the Apple App Store or Google Play.
