So I’ve got some info for you from yesterday’s Facebook F8, it’s basically a collection of excerpts from PR that I’ve received about new apps and upcoming integrations. It’s stuff that you may not have heard about, personally I couldn’t care less about the changes to Facebook. Yes I use it, but I don’t feel my life should revolve around it or any other ‘social network’ for that matter. I don’t feel as if my life will end if I don’t update for a few days as I know some people do. Anyway, here’s the info for you to go over at your leisure..

Artez Interactive announces new social fundraising app – built on Facebook – at f8 Developer Conference
Artez Interactive announced a new Facebook app that enables friends to share the charities and social causes they support through the Facebook Platform.
Artez was one of a new class of apps announced at f8 to integrate new Facebook features. The Artez app makes it possible for people to connect around charity online with their friends like never before.
The Artez feature works in the following way: When a donor is on a charitable site enabled with this new app, a box will appear after they have completed their donation to ask, "Spread the word….share with friends" on Facebook?" When a donor agrees, her Facebook News Feed is updated with "Kiran Balladinhas donated to ABC charity with Artez Interactive." No confidential information or contribution amounts are posted, rather a simple message highlighting the donor’s action for a worthy cause.
In addition, the charitable organization receives a positive personal brand endorsement to an entirely new network, ultimately increasing the charity’s own brand profile and reach. And as donors interact with the app, their friends can discover the charities that they care about.
