I'm creating a turn-based game that I'd like to integrate into Facebook. Players may not necessarily be playing in real time so having a way for them to know when it's their turn is desirable.
I was initially thinking facebook notifications, but it appears that has been deprecated: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4619164/how-to-send-a-facebook-notification-through-their-api
The alternatives don't sound terribly pleasant (writing on their wall, or having the player that just finished their turn send a request)
Are there any better alternatives?
