North Social Launches Trivia Contest App For Facebook Fan Pages

Oakland, California (EastBayDaily) — North Social, a provider of Facebook applications for over 25,000 businesses, has released a new trivia contest app that enables brands to launch custom quizzes, trivia challenges, and fan surveys on their Facebook pages.

The new custom Trivia Contest App for Facebook allows fan page managers to more effectively engage their fan base, motivate them to get involved with their brand, and spread the word about their products or causes by letting them activate three types of trivia contests; 1) True / False Quiz; 2) Multiple Choice Trivia Challenge; and 3) Personality Quiz. Whether a brand’s goal is to educate, entertain, or extract key customer insights, this powerful app has a multitude of usage possibilities for both B-to-C and B-to-B brands.

The North Social Trivia Contest App engages fans and checks the gamification box with an integrated social challenge feature. After a user completes any one of the trivia challenges, they are immediately shown their results and prompted to share the application by challenging their friends to beat their score.

The app is built on the North Social v3.0 content management system which gives page managers the ability to quickly convert a concept into a live social media promotion without writing a single line of code.

“Our team works with thousands of brands and they all have different social media objectives, so we built the Trivia Contest App with flexibility in mind”, explains Chris Mottau, General Manager, North Social. “It was important for us to build an app with a powerful core engine that lets brands launch an entertaining trivia challenge or a social survey to gain valuable insights about their prospective customers.”

Brands and agencies interested in the new Trivia Contest App for Facebook can see a live example and enter for a chance to win $1,000 in Facebook apps by entering the Holiday Marketing Trivia Contest on North Social's Facebook page.
