BandsInTown, the top concert-discovery application on Facebook, plans to deepen integration within the social network. The app, which reaches more than 20 million unique Facebook users per month, wants to connect more fans through concerts they’re planning to see. BandsInTown CEO Julien Mitelberg spoke with AllFacebook about how the app will use open graph technology to make Facebook users more aware of events featuring their favorite artists.
Facebook’s experimentation with its events feature is continuing full-speed ahead, as sister blog Inside Facebook reported that the social network is testing a change in wording for one of its RSVP options, from “maybe” to “interested.”
Facebook is testing different buttons allowing users to buy tickets to events, but the actual transactions take place off the social network, as clicking on the buttons take users to third-party websites.
