Facebook is so open that there are many many cases where one can accomplish the same task in various way.

Registering our application in Facebook is one of such cases.

 

"My Way" of Registering an App

Since the first day I started learning how to develop canvas applications on Facebook (though it is actually not that far away from now), I only know how to register an application by going to http://www.facebook.com/developers/.

If you want to develop a website / application connecting to Facebook by using the JavaScript SDK, you can still go there to register the "application".

"Alternate Way" of Registering an App

Not until recently I saw a post in the Facebook forum where a user had reported that he cannot setup an application by going to http://developers.facebook.com/setup/, I do not know we can register our "app" this way.

 

Anyway, even if you register your app by using the "alternate way", you can still see your application in the developer's page (i.e. http://www.facebook.com/developers/).

With the sample code shown, you have already developed a page that connects to Facebook by using the JavaScript SDK. Sound easy?
