Many popular Facebook games are like fireworks: They rise and explode, then disappear. SongPop, recently named Facebook’s top game of 2012, relies on more than pyrotechnics to please users. Mathieu Nouzareth, CEO of SongPop developer FreshPlanet, told AllFacebook that the game has stayed popular simply because people have always and will always love music.
Facebook CEO and Co-Founder Mark Zuckerberg loves SongPop. Facebook developers love SongPop. It seems like pretty much everybody loves SongPop. FreshPlanet, which developed the game, recently announced that the fun “Name That Tune”-like application reached some major milestones.
When FreshPlanet Co-Founder and CEO Mathieu Nouzareth and the rest of the development team started working on SongPop, they just wanted to create a game that would tap into the potential of mobile and social media. The game — which quizzes users on their ability to recognize a song as quickly as possible — has earned praise from Facebook Co-Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg and was recently featured on the Facebook developer blog.
