Explain, please?



The way Facebook's Graph API is structured can be applied to other datasets containing interconnected objects. It's like a REST service serving JSON, with a specific way to construct the URLs. I like it a lot. Here is a blog post explaining the Freebase implementation:

The Facebook docs:

But even the cleanest API is of no use if the API calls don't actually work...

Explain "doesn't work".

Also, does FQL work? I'm just starting to look at it for an app.

It doesn't say anything about the API. Is there a spec for the API that is independent from Facebook? Is it creative commons/open source?
