Derrick Harris reports that life is getting easier for Facebook developers, with a new arrangement seeing Heroku offered as a simple means of hosting and delivering new applications to users of the social network. Heroku, which was acquired by Salesforce last December, offers a Platform as a Service (PaaS) product that supports developers writing in languages such as Ruby and Java.

With competition hotting up in the PaaS sector, high profile relationships such as this one should do Heroku a lot of good.
