I would like to add Q&A section for developers in my website. It's obvious that the best solution out there is the one I am currently using (stackoverflow.com). How can I create my own subdomain in stackoverflow like facebook did (facebook.stackoverflow.com)?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
We currently don't have any plans to set up more subsites like Facebook.SO.
Before I continue, I should first clarify what it is. Facebook.SO is not owned by Facebook. Facebook employees (presumably) check it and answer development-related questions about writing Facebook apps, but in essence it's just a view onto Facebook-related tags on Stack Overflow.
So before we start talking about maybe creating a subsite for your company, we need to see questions from developers about your platform. Right now, I don't think there are any... so that would be a good place to start.
With all that said, note that Stack Overflow (and Stack Exchange in general) is not the right place to move all of your support to. Companies like Google or Facebook have successfully encouraged developers who use their stuff to ask their programming questions on Stack Overflow, but that's where it ends. End-user support, discussions, feature requests, etc. still have to exist somewhere else.
Your other option is to see if there's enough community support for a dedicated site, although that'd still be subject to the same basic restrictions in scope that I described above.
