  • Interesting. We've just launched what I think is the first PM tool designed for Facebook. Basically it gives you a traditional task list + gantt chart with task groupings, assignments, simple scheduling and swimlanes. I'd be curious to hear your thoughts.

    We think the important pieces Facebook and the social platform brings to the table are:

    1. A validated resource pool (your Facebook connections)
    2. Push Notifications
    3. Messaging

    For example, if a predecessor task is completed and a successor task has an assignment, that person will receive a Facebook notification in their information stream.

    You can check it out at https://apps.facebook.com/intelligantt
