Emerging Tech SIG: Viral Facebook Apps:





    Viral Facebook Apps: Going from Zero to 1 Million Page Views in One Month

    The "Friends For Sale" Facebook application went from 0 to 1 million page views per day in 4 weeks, with no marketing and an investment of 2-person weeks.

    Join us as Siqi Chen evaluates the technology and opportunities of the Facebook platform, using the "Friends for Sale" application as a case study.

    The discussion will range from implementation issues (e.g. whether or not to use RFacebook) to strategic ones, such as OpenSocial vs Facebook.

    Siqi Chen is a founder of a YCombinator-funded startup in the Facebook space and a top ranked developer on the Facebook platform. He was previously a product manager at video sharing site Veoh and a software engineer at the semantic search startup Powerset.
