Facebook rolls out apps marketplace in six other countries


Facebook is aggressively attacking the international scene as they rolled out their apps marketplace to more countries abroad. The company announced that in addition to US and UK, Facebook users can now access the app marketplace in Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, India and South Africa.

Users from those countries can access the Facebook apps marketplace located at the left hand portion of the news feed of the Facebook site, as well as Facebook apps for the iPhone, iPad and Android devices.

The social networking giant’s app marketplace was launched in the US early this month. Users can browse apps by category and filter to show apps that are available via mobile, Web or both.

If a user selects an app while scanning through the App Center, they can decide whether to install the app in their mobile devices immediately or at a later time.

The App Center is not solely for Facebook apps. Developers can also place their apps in the mobile app stores. If users decide to click on third party apps, they will be redirected to the site of the app.

Facebook gets 30% of the income when an app is sold directly through Facebook’s App Center.

Will Facebook roll this out to other countries in Asia and Europe?
