Facebook approving Open Graph Timeline integrations starting today, announces 60 new app partners

Facebook will review new Open Graph apps that want to create custom actions and integrate Timeline starting today, the social network announced at a San Francisco press event.

[Update 1/19/12 8:33 a.m. PT: If developers want to use a custom verb in their app, they must submit it for review. An earlier version of this story incorrectly suggested Facebook would approve any app.]

Facebook’s Carl Sjogreen took the stage on Wednesday night’s event to walk the audience through the new app authorization dialog, which was detailed earlier today in a developer blog post. App content will show in three places: recent activity, Timeline and in the monthly/yearly summaries that appear within Timeline.

“Whatever you want to do,” Sjorgreen says, “there will be an app to tell your story.”

As part of the announcement, Facebook also revealed 60 new partners utilizing Open Graph apps. These apps, available now, span everything from Rotten Tomatoes movies people want to see to Airbnb accommodation reviews. Other partners announced during the event include Ticketmaster, Pinterest, Ford, Polyvore, LivingSocial, Foodspotting, Yummly, StubHub, MapMyRun and more.
