Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) May 1, 2008
Today, Refresh Partners Inc., launched its Refresh Analytics tool, which provides Facebook application developers with analytic and demographic information on their users. Refresh Analytics provides better understanding of the application's users, helping developers create more popular and more profitable applications.
Currently Facebook application developers have very little information about their active user demographics and cannot track the impact of new features nor seek more relevant advertising for their user base. Refresh Analytics will change that.
Refresh Analytics can be easily integrated into any Facebook Application and provides tracking across 13 demographic and 6 interest categories (i.e., geography, gender, age, martial status, music, books and much more). All demographic information is collected in aggregate to protect user privacy and respect the Facebook platform terms of service.
Refresh Analytics is free to use and provides a daily snapshot of 1000 users. Historical reports can be generated for the past month, past 6 months and past 2 years.
"We're excited about the opportunities that Refresh Analytics creates for Facebook application developers in terms of them being able to better understanding their users and how that information can positively affect their advertising revenue," said Roy Pereira , co-founder of Refresh Partners, "Over the last six months, our clients have benefited from this information and now any Facebook application will have the same access".
Refresh Analytics has partnered with Joyent, Inc. to provide a scalable and reliable platform for Refresh Analytics to grow and meet the demand of Facebook applications.
"Joyent is one of the leading hosting providers for Facebook applications and provides an easy route for applications like Refresh Analytics to grow", Rod Boothby, VP of Platform Evangelism at Joyent, Inc. "The largest Facebook application running on Joyent today does one billion page views a month. Refresh Analytics is a useful tool to help developers manage the process during exponential growth."
"Weddingbook has been using Refresh Analytics throughout its beta program and the analysis of demographic information has really helped us go after the right advertisers", said Kevin Lister, founder of WedSnap, "For a traditional brand advertiser, this demographic information is not only helpful, but necessary. Any application that doesn't have insight into their demographics will not be able to escape the commodity-level CPMs offered by most ad networks."
