Facebook Timeline apps benefit UK companies

The Facebook blog has announced a number of new Timeline apps. Facebook's Carl Sjogreen said you can "enhance your timeline with apps that help you tell your story, whether you love to cook, eat, travel, run, or review movies". He then provided examples: food lovers sharing recipes using Foodly, and travellers bringing a virtual passport to their timelines through Gogobot or TripAdvisor.

Although big online services tend to start in the US and grow from there, Facebook has taken care to ensure its apps have worldwide relevance, and many of the 60 new apps include those with British and European roots, such as Auto Trader (social car buying), Lyst (fashion finds), Soundcloud (upload and share sounds), Mixcloud (music discovery and playback), Artfinder (artwork discovery and identification), and s[edition] (art collection showcasing and 'gifting').
