My Shopping is Buzzing After One Week

Submitted by on July 27, 2007 – 1:22 pmOne Comment

Our official press release for our new Facebook application went out just last Friday. Since then the application has been gaining attention from bloggers around the globe (including France and Japan). Coverage ranged from popular social media news blogs like Mashable to the shopping industry’s own InternetRetailer magazine.

Shannon from Varien provided a nice review. I figured I’d respond to her question directly here. In her review she refers to the shopping news feed (found on our application’s entrance page) and asks,

“How do I filter out all of these other users?”

Great question! As time goes on and we see more “networks of friends” versus individual users, we’ll add filtering features.

She also states

“In the end, I came away wishing more Facebook application developers had given their offerings this much thought and care.”

That means a great deal to me personally.

Next up… I’ve talked about viral expansion a lot recently. Here is what I am talking about. A continued uptrend of % of change in users. A picture is worth a thousand words right? The graphic below looks at the growth rates of our application and that of the eBay Shopping app as well (since last Friday, July 20th). While the eBay Shopping app has been around longer and has more users, our app is growing at a rapid pace.
