    I am starting out in FB app creation and was wondering if there is any advantage of getting a domain name for my facebook app if I will mainly be promoting it in Groups and Pages.

    Example: I realize that apps have the full name of h**p://apps.facebook.com/mynewapp

    But does it help to forward a domain name like www.mynewapp.com to my app? Or do people in Groups and Pages not care about the link they're clicking to get to my app?

    Would a domain name only be useful if I advertised OUTSIDE of FB?


    Thanks all...

    People going to add an app would trust an internal Facebook link far more than an external one. Plus external links can be banned from Facebook. I'd just stick with the internal one. :)
