Facebook Application Development in Bangladesh

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, we created a digital agency called WEBPERS. 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.

Facebook statistics :: Bangladesh

Last few days I was doing a work based on facebook users. And there I found some interesting results from facebook such as total facebook user is more than internet user etc. I have decided to write something about this findings. At first I would like to say the total internet user in Bangladesh. According to ITU Bangladesh has 617300 internet users till July, 2010. But interestingly I have found that the number of facebook user is more than the total internet user in Bangladesh. The total facebook user in Bangladesh is 1,020,560, which is 165% higher than the internet user. That means every internet connection has 1.6 facebook user. Ok, let me see the total overview of my findings. Be sure that all the statistics are based on Bangladesh.

Total facebook user : 1,020,560

Number of male user: 749,320(73.42%)

Number of female user: 260,660(25.54%)

Relationship Status :

Single-332,760

Engaged-15,460

In a relationship-58,880

Married-89,160

Education status:

University graduate-199,860

At university-19,120

At secondary school-6,400

User’s based on age

Age user Percentage
13-17 99,400 9.739751
18-24 507,080 49.68645
25-30 257,980 25.27828
31-45 135,320 13.25939
46-55 12,160 1.191503
56 up 4,000 0.391942

This all about what I have done. You can easily understand from the above statistics that, peoples here aren’t interested to fill about their educational status and also the relationship status. But about the users age ranking it is pretty clear that every thing is correct because facebook couldn’t allow user without age and also gender. So facebook should also be  strict for educational and relationship status. All the datas are collected from facebook.  Ting ting 😉

Recently I have seen that a lot of young generarion people’s using mobile internet and they shown it to other’s by using the facebook. In facebook if anyone change his status then it shows that the status is changed from mobile internet. The last week from Jewel bhai got that it can be changed by the PC also and now I change my status from my PC but in facebook it shows that this status is updated from mobile. The steps of to do this thing are:

  1. At first open the facebook and then login.Then in address bar where “www.facebook.com” is written changed it to “m.facebook.com” .
