In a significant announcement on Wednesday, popular social network Facebook said that it is finally coming up with its app store or catalogue of sorts - dubbed the App Center - in the coming weeks.
Describing the App Center announcement as a call to the developers to get ready to submit the apps which they want Facebook to feature, the social network's spokeswoman Malorie Lucich said that the App Center has chiefly been designed with the aim of pushing the best social apps via a personalized discovery page.
According to the information shared by Lucich, the App center will surface specific apps for different Facebook users, on the basis of their behavior on the social network. Lucich also added that once the users select an app of their choice, they will - depending on the device being used by them - be sent to either Apple's or Google's app store.
Meanwhile, pointing out that the more than 900 million Facebook users can presently find official Timeline apps on the Timeline page or use Facebook search, Facebook's Aaron Brady said in a recent blog post that the Facebook App Center will soon be "the new, central place to find great apps."
Further elaborating that all App Center apps will have a "detail page" to facilitate users in selecting apps of their choice, Brady said that the information given on the page will not only help the Facebook users "see what makes an app unique," but will also allow them to "install it before going to an app."
