Most marketers know the real battleground on Facebook is in the news feed, not on Facebook pages. In fact, very few Facebook users actually visit Facebook pages. Instead, they interact with page updates in their news feed.

The problem with most Facebook page apps is that they require the user to visit the Facebook page. For example, a photo contest requires that users visit a custom tab on the company’s Facebook page to upload a photo and submit a contest entry. In essence, they have to LEAVE the news feed, their home away from home, in order to participate in the photo contest.

ActionSprout removes this potential barrier by letting you put the acquisition action in the news feed.

For example, someone can “Sign” a petition, “Support” a project or “Demand” a challenge (as shown below) in the news feed.
