App of the week: The Ultimate Friend Test

   Category: Highlights, Tips |

We spend a lot of time on Facebook, and most of us have hundreds of friends – but how well do we really know our “friends”? Are we really bffs and bros?

How about taking up the challenge? Take The ULTIMATE Friend Test and find out how much you actually know your friends. Answer questions from their Facebook profile: when their birthdays are, where they studied, where they checked in or what they have liked.

This game will truly test your memory. Do you remember who ended up with this silly status from a Facebook-jack

Or that this cheeky one, liking this page!

😉
Too easy? Take it up to the next level and add on expansion packs with the coins you earn and you’ll be able to challenge your friends by seeing if you can identify an anonymous status update or link!


So, do you really measure up in the end as The ULTIMATE Friend? Download it from the App Store and Google Play today!

Constantly sharing it, of course! :)

Basically what you have to do is to make sure your Social Sharing updates appears on the top of the page as frequent as you can to maximize your rewards!
