Platform Briefing: Facebook Timeline & Open Graph Q4/2012

The Facebook platform is ever-evolving – for someone not constantly working on platform it has proven to be a challenge keeping up with new features & possibilities.

Passive Sharing & The End of Authenticated Referrals – Advanced Open Graph #2

Beyond Kampagnen-Apps: Sichtbarkeit von Anwendungen erhöhen mit Facebook Achievements

Wir überlegen täglich gemeinsam mit unseren Kunden, wie erfolgreiche Social Web-Applikationen aussehen können. Durch die Fülle an konkurrierenden Facebook-Kampagnen, fällt es jedoch immer schwerer, Benutzer an die eigene Marke zu binden und auf neue Kampagnen aufmerksam zu machen. Deswegen achten wir immer darauf, leicht verständliche und möglichst Plattform-integrierte Applikationen zu konzipieren.  Am Beispiel des “Stiegl Maibaums” soll […]
