Facebook app for sale on eBay
This opens up a realm of possibilities – instead of writing applications for their own use developers can write applications to sell. Who would buy a Facebook application? Well in this particular case it’s a review application for music, films and books – it has the obvious tie in to Amazon’s affiliate scheme so potentially it could generate a nice revenue stream if enough users sign up.
There’s always a risk you’ll never recoup your initial outlay if you bid on a Facebook application, but equally it could be the biggest money spinner ever. Only time will tell, you could never make a penny out of it, or equally you could be laughing all the way to the bank with the developer wishing they’d never sold their killer app!
Shall I or shall I not ???
Nope, I will keep my FaceBook app
The app currently has 22 active users and a great deal of competition. I suppose if you are a developer who doesn’t want to host or to support your product and its user base then selling it has some merit. However, I’d have thought that the optimum time to sell would be when the application user population starts to explode rather than at the outset..
