Something I saw recently about development on Facebook..

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

I saw the link below a couple of months ago and I thought it was quite interesting. I think there is some potential for people to come up with some really creative ideas for some apps inside of Facebook.

 

I know some people might be getting a little anti-Facebook, and yes, sometimes I get annoyed with their persistent attempts at personal invasiveness. However, I can also see from their demo that there could be some ways for developers to create some fairly cool apps. that people would find useful. So check it out and see what you think for yourself.

Dont see how this is different to the ability to do apps for facebook that has always been there. Same with the app marketplace they have been talking about doing too, although I guess the idea behind that is that people can actually charge for apps rather than having to charge for things in the apps in order to make money.

Do people still play Farmville? I thought it was dead LOL. Thankfully I was never addicted to it but some of my friends were constantly playing and talking about their "Farms".

 

Charging for apps is not a new idea but not everyone uses it. It can surely help people to get returns on their hard work.

Perhaps I should have also included the following link..

The point is for those who hadn't yet been inspired, maybe they should check out FB as a potential area to make some apps. Not everybody has done that yet. :)

I agree, and getting inspiration from other stores such as appstore, googleplay etc can be a good idea :)
