With the The Gift App's strong growth on facebook, it proves once again that not only are users demanding quality virtual goods, but that they can continue to send them freely outside the walled gardens of their favorite social games
Torrance, CA (PRWEB) February 16, 2011
Today, The Gift App, LLC announced they are producing branded virtual goods for world-renowned brands. They will begin offering them exclusively on their popular Facebook app starting today with the unforgettable imagery of Star Trek and the USS Enterprise, iconic instrumentalist Yanni and legendary rock group KISS. These branded virtual goods are a new partnership between The Gift App and Swagbucks.com, the web’s leading online reward currency. The application can be seen here: http://www.thegiftappstore.com
The Gift App facebook application allows users to send animated virtual gifts to their friends either for free or by purchasing premium gifts with Facebook Credits, the official virtual currency of the social media giant. The Gift App is currently the first and only virtual gifting application to adopt Facebook Credits as their exclusive currency. Since quietly launching in late October of last year, The Gift App has far exceeded initial expectations, highlighted by the recent Christmas and New Year holiday period where one million virtual gifts were sent.
According to In-Stat analysts, global revenue from Virtual Goods will reach beyond $14 billion by 2014. Brands are aggressively spending in the social media space as more people adopt virtual goods as part of their identity. This behavior has helped propel The Gift App to the forefront of this expanding market in such short time. ‘With the The Gift App's strong growth on facebook, it proves once again that not only are users demanding quality virtual goods, but that they can continue to send them freely outside the walled gardens of their favorite social games” stated James G.
