Congrats, you've done it!
It's one thing to know how to add a team member to Facebook Developers, but that is worthless if you don't know when you should do it. Let's break down the relevance of this question based on two high level categories. We'll walk through an explanation as well as provide a score, 1-10, that shows you how relevant this question is whether you do or don’t have a product.
The first scenario we will walk through will be if you do not have a product yet. Whether it is a website or a mobile app, you are still in the ideation or planning phase and have not yet built anything. Maybe you have started development but just aren’t finished with your first version. Whichever it is, we'll get into why this question is or isn’t relevant and why you should or shouldn't care about it if you do not have a product.
Your product isn't live but you may want to be integrating Facebook into your product since it is a common social network. If that is the case, you need to know how to add your developers to your team.
Live Product: 3/10
With a live product, this is only relevant if you want to be integrating Facebook into your product since it is a common social network. If that is the case, you need to know how to add your developers to your team.
The second category is if you do have a live product. Maybe you just launched your business or maybe it's been live for years and you're continuing to improve its quality and release new features. Regardless of the scenario, if your product is live, this question carries a different weight of relevance.
It's your lucky day as all you need is a Facebook Developer account!
- Facebook Developers is used to leverage Facebook's data and application.
- If you don't have a product yet, this only matters if you intend on integrating Facebook with your product.
- If you do have a product and have integrated Facebook login, as an example, then you should know how to add team members rather than providing your root access.
