NEW YORK, April 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Invoke Media today announced it has been named to the new Facebook® Preferred Marketing Developer Program (PMD). The Facebook PMD program recognizes companies that have developed technologies in one or more of the following specialty areas: Page management solutions, ads management solutions, services and platforms for building socially enabled integrations, and/or tools or Page Insights analysis. Invoke has been recognized for its custom app development.
To be named a Preferred Marketing Developer, developers must demonstrate unique capabilities that help marketers scale and achieve efficiency, and extend measurably beyond the functionality of Facebook's native tools. Companies that are recognized with a Facebook PMD Badge must demonstrate an ongoing high-standard of excellence to Facebook and meet specific compliance policies that govern users of Facebook's APIs.
"Invoke has been designing and developing custom applications for the Facebook platform for years. From contests, to sweepstakes, landing tabs and custom applications, it's rewarding to have our work, level of experience and overall strategic thinking earn our team recognition as a Preferred Marketing Developer for the world's most popular social networking site," said Dario Meli, Co-CEO at Invoke.
This week Facebook announced it merged its Marketing API Program and the Preferred Developer Consultant Program to create the new PMD program to better represent the various technologies in the Facebook ecosystem and to recognize companies that develop holistic solutions.
"Invokes strives on making more effective applications, that make social marketing easier. What separates other organizations from a Preferred Marketing Developer is the ability to build out innovative strategies and make the most out of Facebook platform features. This is exactly what separates Invoke from other companies," said Meli.
