Facebook Foursquare Timeline App

まだFacebookのTimelineアプリケーションに手を出していないとしたら、既に遅きに失していると言われるかもしれない。3ヵ月前にプラットフォームとしてのTimelineを用意して以来、既に3000ものTimelineアプリケーションがリリースされているそうだ。そして本日(米国時間3/12)、Foursquare、VEVO、The Onion、Fandango、BandPageなどが、プラットフォームを利用して評判を広めようとTimelineアプリケーションに参加することとなった。Timelineアプリケーションからは、FacebookのTicker、ニュースフィード、Timelineなどに利用者のアクションを表示することができ、Pinterestなどは大いに利用者数を拡大している。


ところでThe OnionによるTimeline連携の紹介には驚きつつ笑ってしまった。The Onionのウェブサイトには次のように書かれている。「The Onionを友だちにも強引に味あわせてやろうぜ。Facebookにログインすれば、友だちってことになってる連中が何を読んでるのかも一目瞭然。そして君が見たり読んだりしてるクソ記事を教えてやることもできるってわけさ」。こうした紹介文を伴う連携を許可したFacebookの勇気に賞賛の言葉を送りたいと思う。





Foursquare: Foursquare uses many of the new features announced last week to bring its location app to Timeline. People can now add their Foursquare check-ins to their timelines and maps, share their badges and see the top places they’ve checked into.

Nike: As of last week, people can use the Nike FuelBand iPhone app to find friends and see a leader board of how much Fuel they’ve earned versus their friends. Soon, people will be able to post their achievements and milestones directly to their timeline. Extra: FuelBand users can now see the fuel scores of their friends through the mobile app, and starting Thursday they’ll be able to post to Timeline.

VEVO: Vevo introduced a new integration that lets people sign into with their Facebook account, get personalized video playlists based on the artists they’ve liked, discover new music through friends, and post any music video from Vevo’s massive library directly to their timeline.

RootMusic: The new RootMusic timeline app lets people mark their favorite songs and artists and the concerts they plan on attending from the Facebook Pages of bands, like The Stone Foxes. As people click “favorite”, “going to go” and “wants to go” on a RootMusic app, their picks will be added to their timeline.

The Onion: “Laugh alone no more.” People can now log into with their Facebook account to add The Onion content directly to their timeline and share articles and videos as they read and watch. Friends can discover articles in News Feed, and get personalized recommendations on

Endomondo: Endomondo brought its fitness app to timeline so people can share their workouts, progress and favorite routes with friends on Facebook. Sharing fitness activities with friends makes it easier to coordinate workouts and cheer each other on to new fitness goals.
