FYifly.Com Launches Social Event Calendar: Integrates City-By-City Event Guide With FacebookWith 600 Million Users on Facebook, Posting Updates on Their Wall Is the Way Many Americans Share Information; FYifly Is the World's First Social Calendar Integrated With Facebook, Helping Users Find Events and Share Their Plans Over Social Media (February 16, 2011)
BATON ROUGE, LA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/16/11 -- Company CEO Joe McFerrin today announced the nationwide roll-out of FYifly, an online application keeping you informed about what is going on in your city and surrounding areas, and designed to interact with Facebook.
Boosted by a social calendar that covers the entire U.S. territory, FYifly is the fastest route to learn and share about new events, clubs, bands, festivals, or any other upcoming gatherings.
"With over 73% of the online U.S. population on Facebook, FYifly is a great way to immediately let your friends know what you're up to so other people can join in as well," says Joe McFerrin, CEO of FYifly.
Users may register for an event, share photos, or add an event of their own. To find out who else is going, users simply click "Everyone attending" or "Friends Attending."
With more eyeballs on Facebook than ever, FYifly helps event planners to build blazing fast word-of-mouth buzz for upcoming events across Social Media.
With just a few mouse clicks, FYifly will assign an event with its own page, where event photos, calendars, maps, descriptions and links can be updated.
"FYiFly gives event planners the ammunition to allow their events to go viral on the web. Once a user finds an event and clicks attending, it is immediately posted to the user's Facebook wall and becomes visible to that person's Facebook network. According to Facebook, the average member has 130 friends. If promoters are able to get 10 people mark that they are attending an event, the visibility will be expanded to over 1,300 people. This aspect of FYifly can transform any event to a viral phenomenon," says Joe McFerrin.
The new FYifly-website was built with a focus on community environment, simplicity, ease of use, clean style and functionality. FYifly apps will be available for the iPhone, BlackBerry and Android devices in the near future.
