Facebook Out With More Than 60 New Apps Today
Facebook today unveils more than 60 new apps in a move aimed at changing the amount of time and way friends utilize “Timeline.”
The new Facebook apps involve everything from food and music to exercise and events. USA Today reports Facebook’s aim is to get users to spend more time on line with the new apps and share their experiences as they are happening:
“Millions already use music, video and other apps designed for Timeline. But the prospect of hooking users on apps that show when they exercise, where they shop and what they listen to — as they do it — should have marketers and advertisers salivating, analysts say.”
USA Today reports the new apps are the next step in the development of “Timeline” and a major part of Facebook’s drive to maintain its edge over Google+.
Facebook has about 800-million users to Google+’s 40-million.
