A few weeks ago I was inspired by HackNY (where students design/develop/launch an app in 24 hours) and decided to try and fix a recurring problem I’ve been having with Facebook.I often want to segment my Facebook friends based on what they like (places, bands etc) and message them individually. Instead of posting to my wall and spamming everyone I know about an extra concert ticket I have, I wanted to be able to easily message my friends who “Like” the specific band.
24 hours is not a long time, so chances are it’s not perfect, but it was fun to build something quickly that solved a problem. I was hoping to launch it later this week, but wanted to get it live today due to the new Bing Facebook integration and wide discussion around social search.
