You Can Get Paid to Facebook

by Gayla Baer


Love them or hate them, everyday millions of people spend their time on Facebook taking quizzes, participating in polls, and playing games using applications created by their peers for fun. AppBank ( announced today that it is “sweetening the pie” for Facebook application creators with the first solution that pays people to develop social entertainment applications for Facebook. The new solution is free and designed to help non-technical people create any number of high-quality quizzes, gifts, polls, surveys, tests, and games to make an unlimited income per month through an innovative ad-share model. In addition, the platform strictly abides by Facebook Platform Terms and Policies and includes sophisticated filtering technology that automatically prevents users from creating offensive or inappropriate content.

“All in the name of fun, people have created amazing entertainment applications in Facebook for their friends and millions of other Facebook users to enjoy,” said Fred Hsu, CEO and president at AppBank. “Our new approach crowdsources the development of social entertainment applications to the public and compensates them with ongoing ad revenue. The higher the quality of application, the more views, which means the sky is the limit in terms of creativity and earning potential for AppBank creators.”

AppBank: Helps Application Creators Earn Money on Facebook
Facebook currently has more than 300 million active users worldwide, with millions of users logging on to Facebook each day, sharing more than two billion pieces of content each week. With AppBank, everyday people looking for supplemental income can develop, promote, and most importantly generate revenue from creating entertaining applications for Facebook. AppBank’s top earners currently make up to $769 per month — useful for buying books for college, paying for fuel, putting extra groceries on the table, or adding to a family’s vacation budget.

“I had never created any sort of Facebook application before, so I watched the AppBank tutorial then completed the template. Within 30 minutes I created my first Facebook quiz ‘What TV Couple Are You?’”, explains Jennifer Pinel, a recent college graduate. “By monitoring the statistics AppBank provided for my application, I was able to fine tune it for greater pick-up. I already earned a few hundred dollars with just one application and I’m energized to make more.”

This looks really useful – application creation now avaialble to non-programmers. I see a role to play for companies developing apps for clients without the need for advanced programmers on staff.

Artful Dodger October 13, 2009 at 5:45 pm

Wow! This sounds really cool, I might give it a go. If everyone starts doing it though it could be the end of app development as we know it :P .

Katelyn October 24, 2009 at 9:15 pm

Oh, I’m glad you posted about the app maker. I spent way too many hours making my own app after reading about it and had so much fun. So far, I’ve only had friends and family using it, but I can see where the right quirky idea could really make an app go viral. Mine is more cutesy – I used photos from a zoo trip to create a zoo pets app.

Wow! What a cool and fun way to make extra money. This could help pay for my overhead…lol! Doesn’t sound like it would be all that difficult. Maybe a little time consuming at first anyway. Still worth a shot. Thank you for posting such usable information. I plan on checking into it!

This is really neat! There are so many random Facebook apps and quizzes, but this one is really cool, and actually benefits both you and your children. Check out the AcceptEdge College Admissions app! This cool site shows your child where they fall in this year’s pool of applicants applying for college. It helped my daughter choose between University of North Carolina, Duke, Harvard and some other smaller colleges as well!

I never thought anyone could earn through facebook. Perhaps making application would help other people earn too.

Mike November 1, 2009 at 2:10 pm

Wow, that sounds great! I have no technical ability at all but if creating an app is as simple as you say then its definitely worth a shot. Who couldn’t use a few extra hundred bucks a month?

Wow this is great way to earn some extra cash. I never knew that ordinary facebook users can earn from these apps. I would surely try this out. Thanks for sharing this information.

Blastoff Network November 5, 2009 at 4:51 pm

That sounds really useful. I’m not much a facebook user but seeing this may make me change my mind. I wonder what kind of traffic you need or how much you make with it. Guess I’ll have to go read about it.
