A little bit about The iPlatform
Launched in early 2008, The iPlatform is a London based technology company that specializes in building social applications for the Facebook and Facebook Connect Platforms, as well as code libraries and internal platforms to allow new applications to be rolled out quickly, and supported effectively even as Facebook's own APIs change rapidly.
The Company works with some of the biggest agencies and brands in the UK and Europe, delivering multiple major Facebook based brand campaigns every month. Clients include Google, McDonalds, The Economist, Nestle, Unilever, Diageo, ITV, Channel Five, Jack Daniel’s, Sport Relief, Comic Relief, Swatch, Fairtrade, HP, Ministry of Sound, The FA, E! Entertainment and Facebook, to name but a few. The iPlatform was the first PDC (Facebook Preferred Developer Consultant) in Europe and the UK.
Being a PDC enables us to develop long term, robust apps as we keep a close relationship with Facebook and are constantly kept up to date with their ever-changing roadmap. It also gives us insight as to any bugs on the platform and the opportunity to escalate any issues and bugs we see arising. The PDC program's goal is to build a vibrant community to improve and expand worldwide Platform implementations by giving experienced client-facing developers increased communication, guidance and access to Facebook technologies and resources.
