eBOOK DYNASTY: AUTHOR FEATURES: Steve Goschnick
   

Facebook from Five Thousand Feet presents an inferred conceptual Data Model of the Facebook platform as a way-finding map of what has become an extensive system. The visual data model is of the various facets of Facebook -- Groups, Events, Messages, Pages, Apps and so forth -- and mapped down to the descriptive level of the individual data fields as publicly documented in the Graph API 2.0.

While filling such a visual gap is particularly useful for app developers, it is an approach open to every reader who wants a better understanding of the four corners of the Facebook platform and what it has to offer, beyond one's current usage. A spinoff benefit of the visual approach is that it also provides an effortless introduction to Data Modeling, around a subject domain (i.e. Facebook) that just about everyone on the planet is familiar with to some degree.
