Folder Media has created Facebook Apps for BBC Radio 1 and for the UK Radioplayer project.
For Radio 1 we created a Facebook environment for the streaming of the station’s Hackney Weekend event.
We built the app on infrastructure in Amazon’s cloud allowing it to replicate more server resources as server load increased. The app was the first time that the BBC had streamed any media through Facebook.
We also built the Facebook app for UK Radioplayer. This allowed users to share all of their listening with their friends – both live and on-demand – encouraging further exploration of all UK Radio. We also built a function that let radio stations easily add Radioplayer to their own Facebook pages giving an in-Facebook listening experience.
