  • Give it a user-friendly interface: In the online world, where it is quite easy to lose your audience’s interest and attention, having a user-friendly interface is a must. An interface that is sleek, well-designed, and easy to use will help sustain the interest and attention of your users. Make sure that your app is visually appealing because this is often the first criteria that users fulfill when choosing which app to try out.
  • Make a useful app: A useless app is just that — useless. Do not expect your users to keep on using your app unless it does something that is useful to them. Your app should be able to provide something of substance to your users.
  • Make a fun app: Only fun apps reach the list of most popular Facebook apps. More Facebook app users are in the younger age groups, and having a fun app ensures that you capture this demographic. Some of the most popular apps are fun games and entertainment apps.
  • Make it collaborative and interactive: It will help you acquire new users if your app requires interaction or collaboration with other users. This will help maintain the active usage of your app among groups of users.
  • Make it addictive: The more frequent your Facebook app is used, the better. So the more addictive your app is, the better also. Create your app such that users will want to go back and use it over and over again.
