Starting with a Facebook Idea

Target your audience.Look for a niche interest not currently served by Facebook, such as books, stock market or manga.

Think viral.Imagine how your initial users "infect" their friends with the app.

Make it sticky.Offer something fun or useful that will engage your users.

Keep it simple.Sophisticated apps can turn off users with short attention spans.
