Well… I don’t know about you, but this Christmas was incredible. Mirth and merriment were in full supply, and my families were in no shortage of the giving spirit either. I hope everyone had as wonderful time with friends and family as I did. But rest assured, it wasn’t all fun and games. I was hard at work on a very secret project that, I’m happy to announce, has just launched.
I give you the Facebook App Creator for Bloggers!
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past year and a half, you’ve probably heard of Facebook. It’s experienced rapid growth in the past few months, especially when they opened their doors for outside developers to build applications on top of the service.
These application creators quickly learned that leveraging the Facebook platform was a quick way to get a lot of people using their applications quickly, due to the viral nature of Facebook. They’ve created an excellent atmosphere for sharing, due to the fact that there is trust with who you’re sharing with. You personally know all of your contacts, so when they recommend something to you, you’re much likelier to check it out.
Well now any blogger can quickly and easily create an application that will republish your blog’s articles to your readers’ Facebook profile, giving them a way to easily track and share your blog’s articles among their friends (with that high level of trust). Plus, their friends see the application and install it, and the friends of those friends see the application and install it… well you get the idea. The potential is huge. Oh, and did I mention that you don’t have to know a lick of programming?
So if you’re interested, be sure to check it out.
Also, I’ll be giving away 10 lifetime “Pro Blogger” accounts to the first 10 commenters expressing interest below. If you’ve got any questions, suggestions or thoughts feel free to email blogfuse [at] gmail dot com. I’ll be happy to answer any questions.
