Brand Networks Now a Facebook Preferred Marketing Developer

One of a Handful of Companies Globally to Earn Badges in Three or More Categories: Apps, Pages and Ads

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - Apr 19, 2012) - Brand Networks, Inc. today announced it is a Facebook® Preferred Marketing Developer (PMD). The PMD program replaces Facebook's former Preferred Developer Consultant and Marketing API programs, introducing badges to represent specific developer distinctions. To qualify for a badge, companies had to prove their in-house capabilities for each category based on Facebook's pre-set requirements. These badges now signify developers that meet Facebook's qualifications within this ecosystem. Of the hundreds of companies around the world that applied for badge distinctions, only seven earned three badges or more.

Brand Networks is part of this elite group of companies earning three badges for Apps, Page Management Tools and Ad Management Tools.

"Facebook continues to grow its global user base, increase mobile usage, power real identity across the web, and create innovative advertising products. As a result, major advertisers are shifting resources to this medium and are proportionality increasing their Facebook media spend," said Brand Networks' CEO Jamie Tedford. "Brand Networks' new PMD distinction for apps, pages and ads now demonstrates our holistic approach and our ability to comprehensively manage clients' Facebook marketing efforts."

Brand Networks' experience and offerings in these three categories include:

  • Apps - Developing and delivering hundreds of engaging application experiences that are "social by design," generating millions of stories which can be amplified with paid media.
  • Pages - The GO LOCAL™ platform enables marketers to manage publishing and deliver promotions to Facebook Place Pages from one easy-to-use console.
