In November of last year, we announced that Joyent was teaming with Dell to give away $3.2 Million in Joyent Accelerators to Facebook Developers. Our goal was to give developers the power to quickly create and deploy Facebook applications capable of scaling to millions of users.
So far, the program has succeeded tremendously.
Of the current total 14,939 apps on Facebook, 6% run on Joyent. But, the big deal comes here. On Jan 23rd, according to Adonomics, there were 34,175,797 daily active application users, We know that 3,713,675 came from applications that run on Joyent.
Joyent powers applications that reach 11% of the daily active application users on Facebook.
We want to start featuring stories about some of the incredible applications people have created using their Joyent Facebook Acclerators. If you have had some success, please let us know about.
