Today is the last day Facebook Apps will be verified. CampusBuddy was honored to both have been a part of the verification process and to have been one of only 120 founding Facebook verified apps. The initiative that Facebook took with this process was incredibly useful in helping to identify and promote dedicated long-term application developers, and we would have liked to have seen this program flourish further instead of being retired.
The CampusBuddy Facebook Application, with over 150,000 Monthly Active Users (pictured above) has been showing very steady growth since the introduction of the Facebook Verified Program and will likely miss the Verified App perks while trying to attract new users.
We, at CampusBuddy, are looking forward to releasing some nice new Facebook features. In the holiday spirit, our wish this year is that Facebook stabilize the platform more in order allow developers more time to focus on building quality product and less on updating apps to Facebook platform changes and policy updates.
