LOS ANGELES, Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CurrentlyFacebookis the most
famous and used social-network in the world. Solidly on top of the social
media pyramid, the Zuckerberg's creature is not only a virtual home for
billions of people, but also the perfect test bench for many developers who
implement on Facebook their own projects. This is, without a
doubt,Facearound's case.

Facearound is aFacebook App.

Created by the Italian IT company Business Competence, Facearound landed on
the social network in September 2012 with brilliant results (number 1 download
in the "Social" category onApple Storeand more than 75,000 fans on Facebook,
just to name a few).

Facearound, as an inner app, moves through Facebook's users and their friends
lists, and produces a well-detailed map of the "places of interests" nearby.

"Nearby", instead, is the Facebook own creature landed on the social-network
just a few weeks ago (December 2012) that basically works just in the same way
- except for the original dealing/couponing system that characterizes

In fact, as said by Pierguido Iezzi (Facearound founder) "Some of the
characteristics of Facearound remain unique, such as its dealing/couponing
integrated system that does not require intermediation fees".

As per usual, Facebook's biggest value is given by the multitude of projects
and apps created by single developers and software houses from all over the

"There is a fact we must reckon with," Iezzi explains. "The most popular
social-network in the world needs continuous development of new services in
order to keep growing. Since the very beginning, Facebook has always
appreciated the added value given by the developers, and sometimes Italian
creativity and know-how place themselves ahead of entrepreneurial giants".

Extremely meritocratic, Zuckerberg's platform gives attention to each good
idea - it doesn't matter if it comes from a student locked into his own room
or from a well-known company.

The game is open now between Facebook and Business Competence, the company
behind Facearound: a giant on one side, and the small Italian company on the
other side, but it is well known that communication is not only the bedrock of
social media, but also the foundation of any good idea and cooperation.
