Improvements to the Preferred Developer Consultant Program

May 19, 2011ByMatt Trainer

We introduced the Preferred Developer Consultant (PDC) program in December 2009 to connect companies and brands to the resources they need to build with Facebook products and technologies.

This February, we opened up a new round of submissions for the PDC program. As businesses across the world look to get smarter about integrating Facebook, we seek to ensure that the PDC program continues to meet these needs everywhere that people use Facebook. We’ve selected 25 new companies, including 13 internationally-based companies, to join the PDC program. Our 90 PDCs now span across 170 offices and dozens of countries, with 67 offices outside of the US. You can visit the directory to see the full list of Preferred Developers. Please join us in welcoming to the program:

As this program expands across the globe, finding a Preferred Developer in your local area becomes more important. Today we’re proud to announce our revamped Preferred Developer Lookup Tool. Designed and built by Gamaroff Digital, a PDC, the tool allows you to look up PDCs by expertise, location, and any keyword. It’s an excellent way to quickly locate the Preferred Developers that can best serve your needs.

What separates a PDC from most other development firms is the ability to understand social mechanics and technical possibilities on Platform. We’re excited to see the vibrant ecosystem of development, especially as this space of social web integrations expands to become a central aspect of every business and market worldwide.

For more information about the PDC program, including case studies and information on applying to be a PDC, please visit our PDC directory.

Matt wants to see more companies with socially designed products.
