Adobe Systems has co-developed a code library with Facebook that allows Adobe Flash and Air programmers to use the social media site in their applications.

The ActionScript 3 Client Library for Facebook Platform is a free and open source programming language library, which supports the Facebook application programming interfaces (APIs) including Facebook Connect.

Bryant Macy, director of product marketing for the Platform Business Unit, Adobe, said, "Combining social functionality with the Adobe Flash Platform gives the millions of Flash developers the tools to create web experiences that are truly differentiated."

The ActionScript 3 Client Library for Facebook Platform is available immediately as a free download along with developer documentation and tutorials at http://www.adobe.com/devnet/Facebook.

Andrew Shorten, platform evangelist at Adobe, said the ActionAcript software could be used to create desktop applications that connect to the social media site, so that users do not have to log into Facebook directly.
