Facebook developer app stats

We’re looking forward to the sessions on ‘Monetising telco APIs’ at the upcoming EMEA (4-5 Nov, London) and America (9-10 Dec, Orlando) Telco 2.0 Exec Brainstorms, building on output from the May event. A big thank you to one of the panellists, Toby Beresford, a developer specialising in Facebook apps, who shared some latest stats with us (below). Surely an opportunity for telcos to create a platform too. Just needs a joined-up commercial strategy as we described before…. Do come along to one of the events to get the inside track with leaders from Vodafone, BT, Orange, Telefonica, Google, Verizon Wireless, etc…

Latest Facebook developer app stats:
* More than one million developers and entrepreneurs from more than 180 countries
* Every month, more than 70% of Facebook users engage with Platform applications
* More than 350,000 active applications currently on Facebook Platform
* More than 250 applications have more than one million monthly active users
* More than 15,000 websites, devices and applications have implemented Facebook Connect since its general availability in December 2008

this is a great article and thank you for including the Best Buy Remix project. What you say is very true in that it is often not up to a boardroom of executives to figure out ptential value. The API allows for others to help you drive that value proposition. AS the community outreach manager at Best Buy Remix I am surprised each and every day that value is created on both side with the API.
