    is it simply a box on someones profile that points to another server for the content? and you can wire html/php code that would do basically what a website would?


    thinking of an extremely basic app - the picture displayer

    an app that puts a box in your profile and displays a pic.

    the pic is hosted on Ebteks server - its a standard <a href> tag. one line of code

    the html in the profile box is cached by facebook. There are various ways of updating it, just read the developers tutorial/FAQ/examples, it is really straightforward.
