Facebook And Seedcamp Sow European Social Startups

Facebook wants to see more social applications coming from Europe and has partnered with Seedcamp to make that happen.

Facebook first announced this partnership at the German version of the Hacker Cup, Hack: Berlin, today. The social network’s Douglas Purdy describes Seedcamp as “an early stage micro seed investment and mentoring program” in his blog post about the partnership.

Purdy describes the partnership:

At Facebook, we are huge believers in what a small dedicated team can accomplish. We’ve seen European startups like Playfish, Wooga and Spotify build social products that transform industries, and Seedcamp companies like Psykopaint and Garmz are already making their mark. We are thrilled to grow the Seedcamp partnership to create new opportunities for startups in Europe. Developers building social startups can still apply to the Mini Seedcamp Day in Berlin.

Readers, what kinds of social applications do you expect to see coming from Europe thanks to this partnership between Facebook and Seedcamp?
