Facebook launches its own App Centre

Standard

Facebook has started rolling out its own App Centre to US members.

Updates on when it will be available in other countries will be announced in the next few weeks. Unlike Apple who takes a cut out of each app available to their users, Facebook will not take a cut but will direct you to where the app is available. There are a range of Apps available and you can choose between web and mobile Apps. The success of the Apps will be based on the quality of the App and users feedback.

For more information on the App centre have a look at the Facebook developers blog.

You can allocate 5 different types of admin users to your page. This is great news as before any of your admin users could easily delete the other users and there was nothing that you could do about it. This was especially more of a concern if you were using an external agency to manage your Facebook adverts.
