This is very similar to the original Stack Overflow site!

It is basically only a particular view of Stack Overflow. You're still on the exact same site with the exact same content. Just filtered based on Facebook related tags. –  Bart Mar 26 '13 at 8:03
    
@NullPonyPointer Thanks, I read the blog post. This is an interesting feature for the site. –  DKN Mar 26 '13 at 8:03
    
There should be so for all tags. :P –  hjpotter92 Mar 26 '13 at 8:13
    
As much as the answer below is an exact copy of the first paragraph of the answer in that dupe. =) –  J. Steen Mar 26 '13 at 8:31
    
@J.Steen, i agree, see my updated answer. –  Raynold Mar 26 '13 at 8:35
    
@J.Steen Oops, That wasn't my fault :D –  DKN Mar 26 '13 at 8:37
    
@DKN Of course not. –  J. Steen Mar 26 '13 at 8:38
    
@Raynold Rather than answer with a copied answer, you should have flagged this question as a dupe. I believe that is supposed standard procedure, but SE is community driven so "decisions" about "policy" change all the time, and I'm not quite sure how it works on the metas where giving help is paramount. =) –  J. Steen Mar 26 '13 at 8:39
    
@J.Steen , next time i will keep this thing in my mind, thanks for this information. –  Raynold Mar 26 '13 at 8:42

A specific subsection where we get a lot of low quality contributions, and a promise from Facebook staff to contribute to but never came through on. –  casperOne Mar 26 '13 at 12:54

From the Original Source

The http://facebook.stackoverflow.com site is a 'view' on stackoverflow.com, where it only shows questions that have a facebook related tag. In essence, it is the same underlying database, but the question lists are filtered.
