New Favourite Site of the Week 260609

New favourite site of the week this week comes courtesy of Simon (@audaciousgloop) from iJump. It is called 'Prototype Experience' and whilst I am no fan of game stations, this site is ace. This is where real, indepth integration with Facebook really pays off and involves the user on a personal level.

If you want to experience this for yourself, I recommend that you go there now and do not read on. If you would rather not and just find out why/how it works, then read on...

So, I am not much of a game player, but I'm pretty sure it is another one of those 'shoot em up' kind of games. However, that is not what we're talking about, I am talking about the site itself. Basically it delves into your personal details in Facebook and presents it back to you. Freaked me out when it started showing me photos I had recently uploaded and then personal details:
Terribly fun, sad for my friend Nicki whose face has been killed by crazy twine/weed stuff. Sorry, honest I didn't have any way of controlling this! I would recommend a play, just to check out the integration between site and Facebook. They don't link anything back to your Facebook page or spam your friends (thus far) so is a relatively safe FB application to play with.

Totally serious about my last post though - sponsored definitions on Twitter - when did that happen?

Also, shameless self promotion - I got into a top 10 list, a positive one. Thanks @ideology! You can check out the details here, if you want.
