Now day’s facebook applications are becoming a vital role for the marketing of every company. Here, current scenario and previous status of facebook application described. Well, the whole writeup is based on my opinion and thinking, there won’t be any research. So, if you find any mistake or wrong please inform me, I will try to fix it. This article divided into two parts, in first part it is written what I have seen and second part my experience.
I am using facebook since 2007. At 2008 I have seen two of my senior brothers are working on facebook. I didn’t know how to work on facebook? Later, I got them that, they were working on lux channel I facebook application. Probably, this was the first facebook campaign in Bangladesh for any brand. Unilever was also happy about that type of marketing. Out of that two brothers, one was working in a multinational software firm called trippert labs and their main work was to create facebook application. That made me amused and I thought, it would be the next market place in the world or even in Bangladesh. Yes, it becomes true.
Now I am going to share my experience with facebook applications. In 2008, I saw lux channel I facebook application, after that Qubee initiated some facebook application. I don’t remember what type of applications were those? In 2011, on emergency basis I got a call form an agency to create application for unilever. January 2011 I have created 3-4 applications in a row with the help of my senior brother. The experiences of those are huge. My development starts with facebook builds iframe app and interestingly I didn’t need to do the code that time. Just changing the images and using some custom command of facebook in setup. That worked more than enough. Later at the mid of 2011, I started building app with using sdk’s. At that time, in 2011 person likes I was working as freelancer on this field. Later on that year, I have involved with WEBPERS to learn new technologies. And from that time to till now I have the experience to develop more than 70 facebook applications for Bangladeshi clients. In 2014, lots of developers are working on facebook application. Based on 2014’s role, I assume near about 100 applications are developed. And some of good agencies are also started whose are working on facebook marketing. Obviously, facebook application development is a part of facebook marketing. New clients are introducing themselves in facebook and for visibility, they are creating new type of applications and opportunities of facebook app developers are increasing. Era of digital marketing is started and demand of facebook application also hyped with other digital marketing components.
