Why is Newsfeed SmartApps a patent pending product?


Newsfeed SmartApps is officially a patent pending product because the patent covers the creation of interactive content on any social network that has a newsfeed. When we say “interactive content” think of all the content you see in your newsfeed now, it’s straightforward content like pictures, videos, links, text and ads. None of these are interactive in nature, while Newsfeed SmartApps are highly interactive status updates and content pieces.

Our patent clearly defines key elements like what is a social network, what is a newsfeed, what type of existing content is available on the newsfeed and how Newsfeed Apps are a new genre of interactive content in the newsfeed. For more details regarding this please write to us and we can share info. While Newsfeed SmartApps are currently only available on Facebook, we soon plan to launch this for other social networking sites.
