App Center is the central place for the over 1 billion people who use Facebook to find and discover games. The App Center docs have all the info you need to get started with listing your game in the App Center. Take advantage of growing your game through the App Center by following these three steps.
Every game has an App Details page that appears in the App Center. App Details pages help people understand what makes your game unique, see screenshots of the experience and log in to start using the game.
