Remember all those hyped e-commerce apps for Facebook? We do, but it seems no one else does. Will these take off or continue to falter? Read what our Facebook afficianado says about social networking and selling.
“Just recently, Amazon joined the fray, rolling out two new Facebook applications: Amazon Giver and Amazon Grapevine. Giver lets you see and purchase what your friends want through their Amazon Wish Lists, and with Grapevine installed you can see recent public activity on Amazon. Currently, Amazon Giver users have posted 20 messages in the discussion forums and current statistics show that the app has a total of 1,450 installations since March 20, 2008. It currently has only 29 daily active users. Amazon Grapevine shows six discussion board posts, 18 daily active users, and according to Adonomics, 900 total users.”
