Jan 17, 2008 (08:01 AM EST)


TEL AVIV, Israel, January 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Trivya.com, developer of the web's biggest and fastest growing trivia game-platform, is launching a trivia game application for Facebook. Users of the most popular social network online are now able to add the Trivya application and enter free trivia competitions and games directly from their Facebook accounts.

The Trivya application features exciting, fast-paced trivia games played against other members for play-money. Additionally the users will be able to participate in cash competition tournaments (wherever applicable by law), allowing them to win great prizes for sharpening their brains.

As opposed to most Facebook applications, Trivya is a real time multi player service that enables people from all around the world to simultaneously compete against each other for fame, honor, glory and prizes.

The featured games that can be accessed through the application include popular topics such TV trivia, movie trivia, sports trivia, and general knowledge. Players can pick a game according to their favorite subject and compete for the prize pool with other members who signed up for the game. Each game runs no more than 2 minutes, and the prize goes to the player who accumulates the highest number of correct answers. The game has player-friendly features such as the option to skip up to 4 questions, and to cut in half the number of answers in 2 multiple choice questions.

Facebook members can get the Trivya application by accepting an invitation from a friend or adding it through the account of a friend who has it. Also, members can find and add the games by running an application search for Trivya.

The new application is expected to become one of most viral ones on the network within a short period of time. With over 58 million active users who enjoy and share information and quizzes about various sports teams, TV shows and movies, Facebook is a fantastic match for the multi-player, exciting trivia games of Trivya.com.

As part of the application launch Trivya offers Facebook users a compensation plan for distributing the application on the platform. Users will be compensated for their distribution efforts by getting an ongoing share of the application revenues. In addition Trivya proposes a unique offering for other Facebook applications that would like to add revenue models into their apps, by offering a branded Trivya service to their existing user base.

"The launch of the Trivya application on Facebook is nothing but a revolution in the development of business models around the Facebook platform," said Idan Miller CEO of Trivya Ltd. "Since Trivya enables players to participate in cash competitions and tournaments (wherever applicable by law) it creates an incredible opportunity for Facebook users to generate revenues by simply sending invitations to the Trivya app to their friends. Furthermore, our service was specially designed as an add on solution to high volume Facebook applications that seek revenue models, and therefore create a complete revolution in the way users, application providers and advertisers can make money off the platform."
