Toronto's award-winning Secret Location has launched a new content distribution platform called FanViewr. The platform is designed to give film, television, and web series brands "an easy and inexpensive way to create an engaging, robust marketing page on Facebook." According to Secret Location, the tool enables "any entertainment brand, big or small, to upload photos and video, post episode schedules and synopsis, and display status updates, all within one page."
“For too long, it’s been complicated, convoluted and costly to create Timeline apps and publish custom content within Facebook,” says James Milward, founder and Executive Producer, Secret Location. “With FanViewr, entertainment brands can harness the power of Facebook - without having to enlist a third-party web developer.”
FanViewr lets content creators take advantage of Facebook’s new Timeline for Pages by providing an all-in-one custom application designed for entertainment products. By following simple prompts, users can post cast bios, episode synopsis and broadcast schedules with ease. FanViewr also allows users to embed video - from full episodes to sneak peeks - and organize Facebook, Get Glue and Twitter streams.
“FanViewr eliminates the need for multiple apps, is fully supported, and appears as a tab with a custom thumbnail image and title beneath the cover photo on the new timeline,” adds Milward.
Secret Location says that future features like polls, trivia, mini-games are on the horizon for FanViewr, as is the ability to charge for content with Facebook credits.
