    if you mean create a app that has viral qualities -thats what weve done - if you mean us use a dodgy viral script we wanted to go slightly more white hat for long term growth. Im talking about the problem when people have lots of apps installed you appear under the "more.." button and hidden. no way i can think of to alert them to re-use other than emailing them.

    pm me if you have a JV or something to offer too

    so it's all about keeping them active, the more they use your app, the higher your app

    when they use your app, you bring their recently active friends on the top, so they interact more with more active friends. These recently active friends are more likely to respond to your app's wall posts and requests.

    How to know what their friends are more active?
    Read your users' home feeds, extract their friends' ids, post them on the top, etc..

    Code:
    http://developers.facebook.com/docs/reference/api/user/
    find the "home" connection (requires the read_stream permission)
    don't forget to remove duplicate ids
    update recently active friends list every 5 minutes (using ajax)
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 1
