Zoodak is First to Release A Facebook Application for A Fantasy Stock Market Game
San Ramon, CA (PRWEB) January 22, 2010 — Zoodak has just released the first Facebook application that allows users to play fantasy stock trading within Facebook. Zoodak’s Facebook application features all of the gaming and social networking that Zoodak.com has; players can make predictions, create a portfolio, and apply knowledge all without having to leave Facebook or complete a registration. Using a web-mail address book or Facebook account, users can customize invitations and invite friends to play with them.
“Zoodak combines the concept of virtual stock trading, market analysis, gaming and social networking in one easy-to-use and fun environment,” said Zoodak’s Chief Marketing Officer, Adrian Peña. ZooStreet, Zoodak.com’s social networking feature is one of Zoodak’s biggest advantages over other stock market games. Players can access this, along with all of the the other features on Zoodak.com, including the game, through the application on Zoodak’s Facebook page. Zoodak’s Facebook application is the first online stock market game that automatically logs players on to the site and allows them to engage with the game directly from within Facebook. Instead of having to fill in information on a registration page, the automatic registration gets users immediately signed in, playing the game, and on their way to winning cash prizes in tournaments.”
