Hey All! Happy F8 Day.
If you were tuned into Mark Zuckerberg’s F8 keynote, or following the developments online, you may have noticed a Ticketfly mention!
We’re excited to be a launch partner in Facebook’s new lifestyle apps. In the words of the man himself: “With this update to Open Graph, we’re going to expand the set of industries and products that are becoming social to a couple more,” he says. “First, all media: music, movies, TV, news and books… And the next is what we call lifestyle apps.” Facebook has always made it easy to discover great things through your friends; now Ticketfly, with this new Facebook integration, makes it even easier to discover more music artists and events with your friends.
Below is a snapshot of what you’ll see after you buy tickets. How it works: following a ticket purchase, ticket buyers see an overlay or “light box” on their purchase confirmation page which allows them to share with their friends in three important ways.
In one click, ticket buyers can: (1) create a personalized News Feed story and “like” artists, (2) RSVP to the event, and (3) invite friends to purchase tickets to the same event.
All the steps you need to share your pre-concert experience with your Facebook friends! Check out the full release here and stay tuned for the launch, coming soon!
