    Hi,

    I recently launched a Facebook Application, and I'm really surprised it is not as viral as I thought.
    The application is really nice looking and not full of ads, it publishes to open graph, prompts for publishing to the wall and offers incentive for inviting friends.


    Can you still build a clean (not spammy) viral Facebook App ?
    How do you drive trafic to it, and make users share the app to their friends ?

    The best way I found for now is posting to groups with fake profiles, but I can only get few users with that technique...


    Thank you for you answers !

    That's actually what I tried but :
    • For Pages, it's almost invisible to fans...
    • For groups, it works only for few users and then the post disappears quickly

    Posting to pages (even if big ones) is not effective, because posts don't appear to people who liked the page.
    However, thank you for your answer rotem333.

    Have you consider "Why people would use your app" factor while you develop the app?

    It's all about social engineering, dummy sites/apps grow faster

    I would vouch for him. He knows FB like the back of his hand. I sure hope indianbill shares a few tricks too.
