Facebook Top 應用程式

這兩天像玩新玩具一樣玩facebook(簡稱fb),改觀我對它的看法,我原本以為它就是blog的變體,但是其實不然。
  • 就消息流通這件事情而言,blog是要朋友自己連上來才會閱讀到你的近況,但是fb會自動將朋友在fb的活動通知你,包括其訊息、留言、參與過的遊戲等等。
  • blog是一個一個散著,但是fb可以成立團體,有很多美國當紅的媒體、名人、廣告主、議題等,都成立團體,所以如果你從事行銷工作,可以考慮加入各大品牌的fans團體,方便接收最新訊息。
  • 另外,它是一個「系統平台」,可以容納很多應用程式applications。fb專門成立一個application diretory。
    這些程式可以適用於fb內或外、電腦桌面、手機,類型上還是遊戲娛樂為大宗,相當具有發展潛力。我現在玩過一些看似很白癡的遊戲,譬如拉Bar, 刮刮樂、黃大仙求籤等等,這些遊戲的目的是藉由流量來賺廣告。另外,心理測驗也很有趣。非常可惜的是語言交換這一個程式設計很差。http://www.facebook.com/apps/directory.php
  • fb現在已經有付費機制了,我想會更促進一些新服務產生。
  • 另外fb頁面朝「google設計」化了,沒有花落落的背景,整個乾淨清爽;有別一般blog花俏的版面設計。
Top 10 Facebook Apps
現在摘要一下fb最top的應用程式(source:http://reviews.digitaltrends.com/guide/259-page-2/top-10-facebook-apps) 點選服務名稱就可以直接link到其fb的頁面
  • Selective Twitter
    與twitter以及plurk整合,由於這兩個都是大量的短訊息發送,全部貼在fb會有點可怕,有些朋友可能不一定喜歡這種轟炸,安裝此程式,只要想要tweet(貼訊息)時,加打上#fb即可同步發在你的twitter & fb.
    Selective Twitter allows users to share specific information from their Twitter accounts. Just add the app, and punch in #fb to every tweet you want to share to make info automatically show up on both sites.
  • MyCalendar:
    行事曆服務就不用多說了,包括生日、會議、考試、各種約會等等。
  • Facebook Carpool
    讓你找人一起汽車共乘不過只有侷限在U.S., Canada, and England,好環保貼心的服務。
  • Marketplace
    市集,賣舊貨、車子、房子、或是找工作,都可。
  • Flixster
    其實有點像是電影社團,你可以對電影評分、給意見、或玩跟電影相關的測驗。比較好玩的是如果有人看片的興趣跟你相同,他會主動撮和你,讓你多認識一個志同道和好朋友,蠻不錯的。
    Chances are that at least a few of your friends probably already have Flixster on their apps list. It all starts out with a simple test, selecting and rating movies that you’ve seen or have interest in -- or not. Next thing you know, you are matched up with fellow Flixster users on your friends list with similar tastes. Users can keep things fresh by viewing trailers and adding current box office flicks to their running lists. Also, it wouldn’t be a Facebook app without a ton of quizzes to kill more of your free time.
  • iLike
    音樂服務,可以讓你挑選喜歡歌手,幫你追蹤他們的演唱會日期、線上聽一些歌手免費但是不完整的mp3,也會出現在你個人fb頁面,告知大家你喜歡的歌手有誰。當然還是會拼不過美國Myspace的音樂服務。
  • RSS-Connect
    如果你有使用RSS訂閱服務,fb這個功能把你所有喜歡的RSS feeds整合進來。
    We love applications that kill multiple birds with one stone. Instead of flip-flopping all over the Web to get your news, this app delivers your favorite RSS feeds right to your facebook profile page. Of course, if you’re into shameless self-promotion, you can also add your own. Choose whether you want to view that feed on your wall or in tabs. Decide how often you want it updated, and let the news fly. Users can also select whether to spread that wealth of information or keep it all private. If friends see something interesting, they can opt to subscribe to similar feeds.
  • 最後兩個跟遊戲有關,我就綜合介紹。一個是跟美食有關的Restaurant Wars,將你吃過的餐廳評價,然後隨著時間,你會評很多餐廳,如果你的朋友也跟你這樣作,你們可能會重複評到同一家餐廳,可是會有不一樣分數,然後就可以開始趣味「大戰」遊戲。另一個是黑手黨遊戲Mafia Wars,得要呼朋引伴賺各種虛擬物品成為老大。
今天在Times看到一些也是有趣的應用程式介紹,有興趣者可繼續點選觀看。

不會全部翻譯,大概抓一下重點寫:
  • Entourage and Friends At A Glance:
    So many friends, so little time. Now Entourage on Facebook and Friends at a Glance on MySpace let you see thumbnail images of hundreds of your friends at once.
    簡言之,就是讓你所有朋友的照片用縮圖方式一覽。
  • My Flickr and Happy Flickr:
    Every social network lets you upload lots of pictures, but because those images get buried in the back pages of your profile, they hardly ever get viewed. My Flickr for Facebook and Happy Flickr for MySpace display several pictures at once, right on your main profile page.
    每個的社會網絡都讓你可以上傳很多照片,但是常常被埋在底下的頁面,這個應用程式日讓你的照片可以在你的首頁呈現數張照片。
  • Graffiti 塗鴉:
    You start with a blank canvas, a palette of colors and a brush. Once you've created your oeuvre, you can save it to your profile, then hit the replay button to watch it get automatically redrawn on the page. (available here on Facebook and here on MySpace)
    這個遊戲大家一定不陌生,就是畫圖,電腦會保留你的作畫過程,所以當你寄給人時,對方可以完整看出你作畫過程。
  • Text Twirl文字遊戲:
    Scrabulous may be the best-known word game on Facebook, but it's not the only one. If you're in the mood for a different kind of mind bender, try Text Twirl (available here on Facebook and here on MySpace). This is how it works: you get six letters, and you use them to construct as many different words as possible within two minutes.
    雖然在FB上最知名的文字遊戲是Scrabulous,但是這個Text Twirl遊戲提供一個不一樣玩法。舉例:從六個字母中,在兩分鐘內看你可以拼出幾個單字。
  • Bubble Town泡泡鎮遊戲:
    Bubble Town 就是打泡泡的遊戲。
  • BuyBooBuy and ProductPulse:
    The red shirt or the blue one? If you can't shop without a second opinion, check out BuyBooBuy on Facebook or ProductPulse on MySpace. Post a photo of the item you like, and other users will give it a thumbs-up or -down.
    當你無法下決定要買A或是B?可以PO上去,請大家給予評價→拇指朝上或下。
  • Dopplr:
    More useful is a compact app called Dopplr: Where Next?. Instead of flaunting where you have already traveled, Dopplr helps you meet up with friends who may be going to (or already live in) one of your upcoming destinations.
    Dopplr為一家旅遊社交網站。現在已經有很多人在FB上炫耀他們曾去哪些國家,這個新的應用程式Dopplr: Where Next?著眼於你將要去哪裡?幫你找可能想要去那邊的朋友,或是住在那邊的人。
  • Universal Profile Information 通行無阻的個人資料訊息:
    Today social networks are separate, self-contained communities, but soon you won't be limited by your network. That's because Google, Facebook and MySpace are all working to let you port your profile information and contacts from one site to another. That means you'll no longer have to re-create your profile every time you sign up for a community-oriented site like eBay or Digg. Instead, your social network will — with your permission — share information you have already provided. MySpace has announced plans to let members share their profiles on eBay, Photobucket, Twitter and Yahoo! And Facebook will soon allow users of Digg (among other sites) to find out which of their Facebook friends have accounts there. It's too soon to tell exactly how this will take shape, but the changes promise to let users move more freely across the Web 2.0 world. Stay tuned.
    今日社交網絡有許多分散、各自維持的社群。現在Google, Facebook 和 MySpace讓你可以複製您個人的資料至其他網站。也就是說當你註冊一個新的社群網站,你不需要重新建立起你的個人資料。目前各服務陸續宣布時間表,所以拭目以待吧。
