Facebook has recently introduced their new architecture at F8 live event. Basically they have re-wrote their platform from ground up to unify representation of objects like people, pages, photos and the connection between them (e.g., friend relationships, shared content, and photo tags). Sounds familiar ?
Yes it’s the ol’ Anahita Nodes-Graphs-Stories . Nodes representing the objects in the Social Network, Graphs set of connections between the nodes and Stories, the news that travel through the graphs between between nodes.
I am glad to see the concept that we have based Anahita is also being used in the Facebook platform, and hopefully this becomes a common protocol among all the Social Networking platforms.
