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...
