How to select an application on FaceBook?   Leave a comment

Social networking today feels quite like messaging in the age of Compuserve and bulletin boards, or content sharing in the age of gopher – a common statement these days as the main players rush to announce their own foundations for federated social networking.
This has driven many of us to keeping multiple identities and profiles more or less up to date – less, usually.
I am now focussing on FaceBook, which in few months’ comparative practice with LinkedIn and these Live Spaces here I have come to consider as more suited for two key social networking activities: 
1) tracking and making visible – ok, sharing – short updates often
2) sharing rich content by leveraging the broad portfolio of tools made available as "applications"
Incidentally his makes it an interesting candidate for launching and driving campaigns on line, which I hope to find time to investigate later.
So I am now taking one example of one thing I have historically done through eBay lists and book reviews: sharing what I read and what I feel about it.
The question now becomes: how to select among the various applications FaceBook peer-to-peer application development and viral marketing arena offers?
One lives and learns…
