Wir haben für euch fünf unterschiedliche offizielle Facebook Developer Case Studies gesammelt. Bei den Dokumenten handelt es sich um offizielle Studien die von Facebook in Englisch veröffentlicht wurden. Wir finden den Case Studies fehlt es etwas an Hard Facts, trotzdem liefern sie guten Input und neuen Ideen für eigene Projekte:
1. Developer Partner Case Study: Red Bull Application
Red Bull Roshambull is an online version of the old schoolyard game “rock, paper, scissors.” Though it might seem a strange game to play online, it turns out to be a perfect match for the Facebook community.
Users can add the Roshambull application on their Facebook profiles and invite friends to do battle. But this isn’t the same game you played as a kid. Leveraging Facebook technology, the application creates a scouting sheet that can be used to help players decide what to throw.
2. Facebook Developer Partner Case Study: Lending Club Application
Lending Club developed an application that enables Facebook users to lend or borrow money from trusted contacts while significantly improving the interest rates on both sides. For a limited time, the service will be available exclusively to Facebook users.
“The basic economic benefit lies in bypassing the bank,” says Lending Club CEO Renaud Laplanche. “Banks incur costs collecting deposits from the public on one side and extending loans to the public on the other side; Lending Club provides a shortcut.”
3. Facebook Developer Partner Case Study: Microsoft Popfly
Microsoft’s Popfly application aims to democratize development. It’s a web-based tool that gives Facebook users the power to create interactive Facebook applications which use Silverlight, Microsoft’s new cross-browser, cross-platform browser plug-in, all with no programming.
For instance, users can create and embed mashups of websites directly in their profiles. Here’s how it works. Popfly contains a number of preprogrammed blocks. One block might contain all your Facebook data, including contacts, groups and photos. A second block might hold 3D maps from Virtual Earth. Another block might chart any address in latitude and longitude. Put them together and…
4. Facebook Developer Partner Case Study: Box.net Application
Box.net is a website where users can store files of many varieties—PDFs, photos, videos—and access and share that data from anywhere via the Box.net web interface, with no software required. The application it built for Facebook allows users to do the same—publish and share media without ever leaving their profile pages.Facebook has long supported sharing media through its Share feature but, until now, users had to host the files elsewhere on the web. The Box application provides an upload tool, file-hosting and file-sharing functionality directly on the Facebook site.
5. Facebok Developer Partner Case Study: Slide Application
Slide has several applications that are already used by tens of millions of people all over the world. These include Slide Shows for publishing and viewing personal photo slideshows; Slide SkinFlix for personalizing video clips with skins and themes; and Slide Guestbook, an application for friends to contribute their own photos, videos and more.
Slide tailored these applications for Facebook so that users can express themselves more fully. The new applications make profiles stand out with an extra layer of customization. For instance, users can easily personalize their photos and videos using thousands of different combinations of styles, themes, skins and bling.
