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
- 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?
