    Hi,

    I have an app (PM for link, FB will see the link here and assume I want to do something malicious lol), it's only just been built, it's entirely white hat atm with no ads or anything. I need some initial traffic to get it going viral.

    Once it's huge and I think 'I need to earn something from this', I will either cover with adds or put a gateway over the interactive content part.

    But for now I need initial traffic, UK teens preferably... Will pay, though donations would be awesome!

    This is my first facebook app, does anyone have any advise for me?

    Thanks a lot to this brilliant community,
    Max

    Get your developer to use all the available social plugins and ways users can share the app (invite, share, like comment). Giving the users a little incentive to share the app is technically against the TOS even though many of the most successful FB apps blatantly do this.

    If you can afford it, get some real user installs and if the app is good enough everything else will fall into place quickly.

    Yeah, Fuggz is spot on... make sure the app incorporates all the social/media sharing that the Open Graph API offers.

    Regarding traffic...

    Cheapest way would probably be develop a few ad campaigns and drive targeted traffic from http://www.******

    There are some blackhat ways, such as paying for installs (contact Inception_AC if you want to do this), but that might compromise your app all together. To qualify "might," I mean 80%+ likely.

    If I were in your position, I would really drive into a legit Facebook PPC campaign. Crunch the data and targeted demographics so you can get the best bang for your buck.
