Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) can be a huge game changer for micro cap companies like SPYR Inc (OTCMKTS:SPYR). Just last week SPYR Inc crossed the 1$ mark with a significant rise in trading volume suggesting an increased attention from traders and investors. As per a recent press release by SPYR, SPYR, Inc.’s (SPYR) Pocket Starships became part of the first group of games available on Facebook’s new Gameroom platform. For those who are not aware of the Gameroom, Gameroom is a downloadable Windows desktop gaming platform that allows users to play web, ported mobile and native Gameroom games in a dedicated PC app (www.facebook.com/gameroom).
So what makes SPYR Inc stand out in the crowd ? SPYR’s flagship game, Pocket Starships, a real-time, cross-platform space-themed MMO game, should benefit greatly from being available in Facebook’s Gameroom because of the access it gives to Facebook’s large user base. As per the press release, gameroom could provide a huge opportunity for SPYR to reach lots of eyeballs and a chance for Pocket Starships to grow just as Facebook’s Gameroom grows. SPYR can benefit from what should be a lot of free advertising by Facebook to drive its users to download the Gameroom platform. SPYR itself can also create sponsored advertising on Facebook directing Facebook’s users to find and play Pocket Starships on the platform. Gamers will also receive game suggestions based on the games that they play, so SPYR could benefit from having users who play games that are similar to Pocket Starships receiving a recommendation for the game in their personalized recommendation list.
