Gamify Your Facebook Page
Recognize Top Fans!
Now you can easily identify & give kudos (or more) to the LOYAL community that makes up your Facebook page wile letting them “compete” for the top honors!
I’m always on the lookout for hot Facebook applications. When I came across this one, and realized the impact it would have on Facebook’s EdgeRank (visibility for your page), I got super excited!
The have a free and a pro version and I’m going to give you a look at the free account in it’s default setup. You can have the Top Fans app up and running with very little work.
First head out to Brooshaka’s Top Fan App website and register for an account. Connect it to your Facebook page… and then heed the warning that you’re going to need a couple days before you’ll want to actually add the tab as the data won’t be fully counted yet.They’ll send you an email to remind you.
Once added, the app “works right out of the box” so to speak.

Easily Verify The Points Earned

Recognize Your Top 10
(Recognize Link, gives us a share box with the current Top 10)
Something we as page owners have missed is a good way to keep track of what fans are the most passionate… and now you can easily tell!
(Note: This can not identify tags or shared links to the page from someone’s profile.)
The pro version gives you easy ways to run reward-system type projects off this platform, but you can just as easily do it manually as long as you remember to check it at the end of the month. It also however grants extended analytics and other tools as well.
Not shown is the text field that can be added to the top of the app (in settings) that lets you write in anything you want (such as what reward you plan to give the top fan of the month). Use this creatively!
You may chose to recognize the fan, you may reward them with a product, service or consultation, or you may reward them in some other way, the possibilities are limitless. You do however have to be careful about FB’s contest rules which can get your page banned if you run a contest outside of being fully contained in an application such as this (use the pro version for contests).
This app is well designed to be aware of EdgeRank as well as it keeps the traffic within your page, requires no app approval by fans, and does not link out to other random places. It also gives points for the items that build your EdgeRank.
Now you win.. and fans win!
While it may not be appropriate for some pages (either due to topic, niche or relatively inactive), this app is going to be a win for a LOT of pages!
