Facebook have officially launched their App Center, which is the social network's storefront of desktop and mobile applications, which is now available in every country that Facebook is. The App Center first debuted in English-speaking countries such as Australia, Canada, India, Ireland, New Zealand, South Africa, and the United Kingdom.
Then, last week the App Center hit Brazil, France, Germany, Russia, Spain, Taiwan and Turkey. Now, it is completely global, in every country Facebook can be used in, the App Center is there. If you log into Facebook.com, you'll see an App Center bookmark on the left side of your homepage, as well as in the Facebook apps for iPhone, iPad and Android.
Facebook continues to grow, and needs to feed itself into new markets, with mobile being a very important one. Considering that international users make up 81-percent of Facebook's staggering 995 million monthly active users, it's a step in the right direction. I don't personally play any games on Facebook anymore, I'm tied up working so much that I don't have the time to mess with them anymore. But it's nice to know that my wife can jump into SongPop now, direct from the App Center on her notebook, or Galaxy S III.
