Facebook Directs Users To Games’ App Details Pages Instead Of To The Actual Games

Share

KingsRoadVideo650Facebook announced a change aimed at giving users more detailed information about games, directing users who click on game stories in News Feed or in the right-hand sidebar, or game recommendations, directly to the games’ app details pages, rather than to the games themselves.

The social network detailed the page in a post on its developer blog:

We’re giving people more information about your game before they install it. Now people who click on game stories in News Feed and game recommendations on canvas or on the sidebar in the right-hand column will be taken to the app details page instead of straight to the game. Since players are making a more informed decision, they install games they’re more likely to keep playing. As a result, we have seen increased first-week retention among players who install and start playing games in this way. Games don’t need to do anything to benefit from this change.

NASCAR Directs Facebook Users To Wrong TV Network For Pure Michigan 400

Share

Facebook pages are a useful tool for brands to share information, but they may want to ensure that the information being shared is correct, which was not the case for NASCAR this past weekend, as the auto-racing organization posted that Sunday’s Pure Michigan 400 was airing on new cable network Fox Sports 1, when the race actually aired on ESPN.

Yahoo Sports reported on the error, pointing out that the TV rights for NASCAR will shift in 2015 to Fox, Fox Sports 1, NBC and NBC Sports Network, while ESPN currently holds the rights to the second half of the Sprint Cup season and the entire Nationwide Series schedule, through the end of the 2014 season.
