Yesterday, Facebook announced a new wave of timeline apps, including Ticketmaster, Pinterest, Rotten Tomatoes, but didn't bother to mention any Canadian ones. Among the local pickings is the Friendship Powered Fundraising app, built by Toronto's Artez Interactive.
The Friendship Powered Fundraising app enables friends to share the charities and social causes they support on their Facebook Timeline. The Artez app is designed for people who want to tell their friends on Facebook that they donated to a cause they care about. Each donation can appear on their Timeline and in the news feeds of their friends.
“We’re excited to launch the Artez Interactive app for Facebook Timeline to give donors an easy way to share their support of their favourite charities with their friends and family” said James Appleyard, CEO & Chairman, Artez Interactive. “The Friendship Powered Fundraising™ app has considerable fundraising potential. As the popularity of social networking continues to grow, this app will raise awareness and millions of dollars for charities and causes around the globe.”
