Biz Idea: Money-Making Facebook Apps

Facebook I was thinking about Facebook applications the other day. These new apps are kinda fun and getting a lot of buzz. But can you make money off of them, I wondered? Hmmm.

Here are a few that I think could actually generate money.

  • Fantasy Sports

    Since Facebook doesn’t allow sports bookings or gambling in any form, the business model here would be subscription-based, much like what most fantasy sports sites offer right now. CBS SportsLine Fantasy Sports is one such app.

  • For Sale Lists

    Commerce is always a good way to make money. If you have something to sell, perhaps someone on Facebook will be willing to buy it. Ebay To Go and Garage Sale are two such apps.

  • Freelance Services

    Customers don’t only buy products; they buy services as well. If you have desirable skills, why not offer them? No such apps yet exist, though I’m sure a company like Elance, oDesk, or DoMyStuff.com could offer this soon (wink wink).

What other Facebook apps do you think could make money?
