Heroku Now the Default Choice for Facebook Cloud Services

I think this is a pretty big deal for Heroku. To be the exclusive (for now) provider of “Cloud Services” for Facebook is going to give them a monster advantage. Now connect that to Salesforce’s database.com backend integration and you’ve got some serious potential horsepower to explode a whole new category of social enterprise applications that integrate your company’s backend with a Facebook frontend.

One of the new frontiers in social media that few have explored is creating meaningful Facebook apps that provide a unique customer experience to their vendor’s backends. Once this cat gets out of the bag, look out for a whole new category of applications. This latest partnering between Facebook and Heroku is another step in this direction. Stay Tuned!
