I’m really, really, really sorry. I know that I totally slipped yesterday, and didn’t report anything about Facebook. But don’t despair, all. I found more Facebook news today!
Tuesday, VC firm Bay Partners launched a program to fund Facebook platform programmers. The E-Commerce Times reports:
Dubbed the “AppFactory,” the program will grant awards of US$25,000 to $250,000 to Facebook developers using a fast-track approval process. The company hopes to make up to 50 such awards, Salil Deshpande, a partner at Bay Partners, told the E-Commerce Times.
“We don’t know how it will go,” Deshpande added. “The only constraint will be our bandwidth in terms of the time and effort it takes to evaluate, manage and nurture these projects.”
