Bee2gether Turns Facebook into a True Popularity Contest

Fri, Jan 29, 2010

Facebook, Social

Social game developer SparkyBee has developed a new application for Facebook entitled Bee2gether, which isn’t so much a game as it is a conglomeration of normal social networking templates mixed with a few voluntary game-like aspects. Inside Social Games has all of the details you need to know before deciding to install the application on your profile.

Once you install the application, it draws in data about your friends and allows you to begin working towards the goal of being the most popular person in your unique network of individuals. Users can browse through both their own friends and others who have installed the application, and, with these non-friends, add them to their network via a regular friend request that must be agreed upon by both parties.

Players, and I use that term loosely, can then label each person in their network with a relationship status, ranging from strictly platonic to flirtatious and beyond (for those in actual relationships, your boyfriend or girlfriend can be labeled as having “shared your toothbrush,” for example). These statuses affect percentage levels, and your own popularity, as your relationships advance with each person.

Helping in each person’s popularity are the applications nods at gaming, which include a gift sending feature where they can enter into Bee2gether’s virtual mall, and spend virtual credits (unrelated to the overall currency of Facebook credits) on homes, cars, jewelry and other gifts which can then be sent to others or kept for yourself.

If you’re interested in trying the application for yourself (keep in mind that it’s still in beta), head over to Bee2gether’s official Facebook page and get started.
