5 Good App Blogs & Year-End Statistics

In order to stay competitive, apps are constantly innovating. At times, the updates can be frustrating to members – just think back to every time Facebook updated something and hoopla that followed. It is understandable that consumers would be upset and, while there is little they can do about preventing changes in their favorite apps, there is a great way to stay on top of changes as they happen – company blogs.

Originally embraced as vehicles for self-expression, blogs were soon adopted by brands and apps as a way to tell their story and communicate with their members directly. In addition to all the tech blogs and news outlets dedicated to apps, we recommend getting your information straight from the source as well.

To help you stay on top of the inevitable changes at some of your favorite apps, here’s a short list of blogs we like and recent statistics on each one to give you a sense of why staying current is important. Most apps also offer a developersblogs for more technical information and updates.

Tip: Twitter’s New Follow Button and Headliner Users

Twitter Follow Button

Twitter Follow Button

This week, Twitter launched a new Follow button for websites. Similar to Facebook’s ubiquitous “Like” button, Twitter’s Follow button allows users to follow their favorite personalities with a single click from anywhere on the web.

This is great news for Headliner users, as it makes it even easier for you to increase your fan base. On Headliner, fans convert to currency, which allows musicians to promote their music through recommendations from kindred artists. The more fans one has, the more currency one has to pay for sharing links across all social networks.

“Adding the Follow Button to your website is quick and easy, and you can configure yours right now at twitter.com/followbutton.” Check the Twitter blog for more info.
