Facebook tab developer SocialAppsHQ incorporated some of the functionality of social reader applications for Facebook into its new tab app, aptly named Social Reader.

SocialAppsHQ’s Social Reader works in conjunction with its RSS app to allow Facebook page administrators to install and display their RSS feeds on their pages. When users click on links in the RSS feed, they are taken to articles in the Social Reader, which are displayed on Facebook’s ticker and news feed.

The vendor cited brand recognition, broader circulation, and increased referral traffic and likes as benefits of its Social Reader app.
