Open Graph apps can now publish multiple photos and use third-party location data

Facebook now lets developers attach multiple photos to Open Graph actions and use their own location data for Open Graph actions and objects, according to a post on the company’s developer blog.

Previously developers could only include one photo along with Open Graph stories, and apps had to use Facebook place IDs in order for location information to be integrated into a user’s profile and News Feed. With the additional location support, developers can create their own place objects or use a third-party location service, like Foursquare, and still benefit from their stories appearing on a user’s Timeline map and in News Feed stories and aggregations.

These are key enhancements that build upon changes Facebook made in April to allow developers to create richer Open Graph stories, including changing its API to let Open Graph apps publish large user-generated photos and giving the option to add locations to actions users take within apps.

More technical information about implementing location tagging and multiple photos from Open Graph apps is available from the Facebook developer site.
