  • The App
  • One day, in the Digital Library…Todd: Hey, professionals charge a lot of money for custom Facebook Apps. Can you make one?Ben: [shrug] Sure. I never have. But how hard can it be?
  • App Building Options: Pay someone. A lot. Do it Yourself Don’t do it.
  • App Option 1: Pay Someone(Did we mention it costs a lot?) PROS Gets done by someone who knows what they’re doing. Full support Compatible and up to date (technically and regarding FB guidelines)
  • App Option 1: Pay Someone(Did we mention it costs a lot?) CONS It costs a lot. Reliant on others for updates and changes Gap between your vision and ultimate design It costs a lot.
  • App Option 1: Pay Someone(Did we mention it costs a lot?) THE ONES TO PAY Wildfire www.wildfireapp.com Social Cubix www.socialcubix.com
  • App Option 2: DIY(It’s hard. And kind of annoying.) PROS Full control of what it does and how it works. Update it and change it on your schedule It doesn’t cost a lot (unless you count the cost of your sanity).
  • App Option 2: DIY(It’s hard. And kind of annoying.) CONS Chances are, you don’t know what you’re doing. No support from someone who does know what they’re doing. Facebook changes a lot.
  • App Option 2: DIY(It’s hard. And kind of annoying.) If you still want to do it… We can provide the code that we used for modification with some guidance. We can provide a Resource Guide so you can start from scratch and do it even better on your own!
  • App Option 3: No App(Do yourself a favor. Go App-Less)Try a Survey Site like Google Web Forms or Survey Monkey  Call for entries via website/email  Participants create Storybirds and share links via online form/survey  Another form/survey is posted with links to stories for voting via form/survey
  • App Option 3: No App (Do yourself a favor. Go App-Less) Extreme Lo-Tech:Try an email/paper based Contest Call for entries via website/email, flyers/posters Participants create Storybirds and share links via email/paper forms Links to stories shared via email, on handouts Votes entered via paper ballots and manually tallied
  • Next time:Since we will know then what we didn’t know this time… Not on Facebook: no required “Likes” or Facebook only participation. Incorporate into our new Nanonwrimo/Readers to Writers program
  • Next time:Since we will know then what we didn’t know this time… Storybird-created Contest site/interface Work more closely with Storybird
