Yesterday we reported that developers should anticipate Facebook adding new sources of traffic to restore organic growth for applications and it appears as though the first source is already being tested. As Eric Eldon reported yesterday, Facebook is now testing in-application promotions of applications. Essentially it shows how many credits a user has and enables users to navigate to their bookmarked applications.

The feature, which was first pointed out by Eric von Coellen, appears to be more of a promotion of Facebook Credits, however it should benefit developers as well.
