"Facebook (FB +2.2%) is done giving its precious social graph to competitors," declares TechCrunch's Josh Constine following a string of moves from the social networking giant to restrict data access to rival platforms. Though Facebook remains happy to have media/content/gaming providers connect to it via Open Graph, it recently blocked push-to-talk app Voxer and Twitter's new Vine app from accessing its Find Friends API. Also getting blocked is Yandex's (YNDX) "Wonder" social search app, which the Russian search leader sees as a means to international expansion.
