    As a die-hard anti-Facebook person, I can't check myself ;) so: do the Facebook games still use Flash Player? If not, the first section of the article should be moved down a bit or removed.

    It looks like they are moving away from it but will still support games that were built using Flash for another couple of years.

    Adobe has announced its plans to stop updating and distributing Flash Player at the end of 2020. While games built with Flash will run on Facebook until the end of 2020, we strongly advise developers to follow the timelines set by browsers, as this may impact your decision to migrate sooner. For developers building new games, we strongly recommend using open web standards. To learn more about how you can migrate off Flash, you can sign up for our upcoming webinar or visit our blog post. https://developers.facebook.com/docs/games/gamesonfacebook/webtech/
