Facebook: you are not REST

Facebook claims their API is REST... umm, no.

First, every request uses HTTP method POST. -1 points.

Second, every request has a method=something, where something is some operation. REST is not RPC. Have you heard of resources and representations? -1 points.

Sorry Facebook. And flickr. And all the rest of you. Kudos to Google who somewhat understands this.
