Logbook, a Facebook application from nothingOriginal, is for sale on eBay. To my knowledge, this is the first Facebook application to be sold on eBay. Logbook is an application that allows Facebook users to add books, movies, and music to a list of reviewed items. The application is built using PHP and MySQL and uses the Amazon affiliate program to get data. This only allows items found on Amazon to be added to the Logbook. This may not be such a big issue since nearly everything can be found on Amazon. Logbook also allows for Google Adsense to be embedded into the application. The winner of the auction receives sole rights, all source code, and all Photoshop files. The application is fairly new and only has around 80 users.
It has been very interesting to see how Facebook’s application platform has transformed the social network! As mentioned in my iPhone article, there are some dev shops focusing specifically on building Facebook applications for companies. I think we will continue to see more and more Facebook applications developed with the sole purpsoe of being sold. I personallycan’t wait until the first big acqusition has happened that invovles a Facebook application.
What type of application would you like to see?
