Funware: Filch Photos on Facebook To Create A Prized Collection

Gabe Zichermann wants to help you create a personal gallery filled with your favorite social photos and have you compete with others to make your collection the most popular, valuable or visually interesting.

His New York-based company, rmbr, has released a Facebook application called Prized Collection so that you can play do just that. The app is billed as a virtual art trading game and it’s in beta.

You start with a small gallery space and, as a new player, with $4k. Your task is to browse your Facebook friends’ photos and buy or steal their pics to display in your gallery.

There are a number of ‘zany’ characters you are likely to meet along the way. The helpful, but creepy Dr Medici and the cunning Boy Scout – they are there to enrich your experience of the game.

I am a big fan of funware and incorporating game mechanics into social media, but this app has yet to grab me. At the time of writing it had 55 daily active users.

  1. What a interesting post my friend. I am a facebook addict and mostly spend my time playing some facebook games and just talking out with my colleages. Surely, there are so many ways we can use facebook and I really love using it. I hope they have something more new to come for all of us.
