Social Network Stores
The Facebook App Store is in the Works

By: Jennifer Gosnell (Rockstar) May 13, 12

To rival competitors like Apple and Google who are offering their own app stores, the Facebook App Store has been announced. Offering apps for pay, the store will feature similar apps and favorites of users such as Draw Something, Pinterest, Spotify and more, and it will also introduce mobile apps for Facebook users that go beyond the current Facebook platform being offered on smartphones.

The concept of “liking” on the store is being seen as hugely important to the success or failure of these Facebook apps. Allowing a more accessible approach to rating, the approval of Facebook users is determinative in what will be offered online. Facebook apps have been free throughout their history, but with this announcement a new wave of paid applications are being ushered in. A new experience is set to make way for both developers and users that are on Facebook.
