Not Ready For Prime Time, There's A Prototype For That...

There's an App for everything it seems, with applications playing an integral role in our lives through innovation and functionality. I have many that I use frequently through Facebook, Google and the iPhone which offer many advantages. Facebook have now launched a new feature that provides the opportunity to try experimental products called Facebook Prototypes.

If you're familiar with Google Labs this is a similar project which I feel makes sense to allow users to test features which aren't quite ready for prime time. There are five currently available which are definitely worth checking out -
Facebook Prototypes let us share the experimentation going on inside the walls of Facebook with the rest of the world. You'll be able to test any of the products and features we launch as Facebook Prototypes and then provide feedback directly to those of us who built them. To access Prototypes, visit the Application Directory and filter by "Prototypes." From there, you can activate or download any of the Prototypes listed.
