In the ongoing chess match for social media dominance, Facebook just made a move that is akin to saying "Check." Today, they launched Facebook Open Stream API.

This means developers can create apps based on the live feeds that users see when they log into Facebook. Users, however, can maintain the privacy controls that they want.
