Facebook today announced the combination of the Preferred Developed Consultant and Marketing API programs and the subsequent launch of the newly minted Preferred Marketing Developer program. There are now 232 of these developers spanning 35 countires. One of those countries is, of course, Canada.
So who are the Canadian preferred developers? The most notable PMD is Invoke Media, which was created by Vancouver entrepreneur Ryan Holmes—now the CEO of HootSuite, a $200-million, Canadian Startup Awards finalist—several years ago. Invoke, which is hiring, is a full-service digital agency specializing in social media, web, and mobile. Its most recent project is Foodee.
Toronto's Majestic Media, Grip Limited, and BNOTIONS also made the list, as well as Awareness Canada in Burlington, Ontario.
