Facebook Query Language
|First appeared||February 2007|
Facebook Query Language (FQL) is a query language that allows querying Facebook user data by using a SQL-style interface, avoiding the need to use the Facebook Platform Graph API. Data returned from an FQL query is in JSON format by default.
This section requires expansion. (May 2012)
FQL was first made publicly available in February 2007.
FQL will no longer be available as of August 7, 2016, when Facebook API 2.0 is no longer available. Facebook API versions newer than API 2.0 do not support FQL.

In the following query, four different types of data are retrieved from a single table (status) and for a single user ("me"):
SELECT status_id,message,time,source FROM `status` WHERE uid = me()
This query can run by querying the Facebook graph endpoint /fql with the parameters set to q=[FQL]
