How to design for the Facebook Platform (via Renkoo: Volunteer!)

I found this post very interesting, because I’m in the process of designing a Facebook app that might work as a promotion of sorts for Georgia Community Support and Solutions. I’d like it to be a game of some kind, but would also like it to relate to disabilities.

So…hey Gini Dietrich, how goes it? Are you familiar with the process of designing Facebook apps? I’m still doing research on it, and it doesn’t seem as difficult as it sounded initially, but my question is, how could I draw attention to a new app and get people to sign up for it? Thanks!

Now that the initial frenzy has died down a bit, it's becoming clearer what the Facebook Platform is good for — and hopefully how to design a Facebook app that will be worth the considerable development effort.

About gcsscommunity

My name is Eric Pudalov, and I work as Community Events Coordinator with Georgia Community Support and Solutions, whose mission is to provide creative, life-enriching solutions to people with developmental disabilities and their families. I became interested in this field, however, due to having a disability myself; namely, I had brain surgery in 1996 at age 14, to remove a benign tumor. Following this, I had many difficulties with short-term memory, loss of strength, confusion, and emotional control. Fortunately, at present, I've recovered much of what I'd lost. Despite some setbacks, I graduated high school with honors, and received an academic scholarship to Adelphi Univ., where I earned a BA in Communications. Since then, I've held a number of different jobs and internships, among them a TA position at Sylvan Learning Center, and work as a "Service Leader" with Hands on Atlanta. Since living in GA, I've also been involved with two programs (including GCSS) that serve people with disabilities. My experience has included sharing apartments with adults with autism and other disorders. Though my so-called "limitations" may differ from those of others in the program, these experiences have helped me to realize that people, overall, are capable of much more than we may at first perceive.
