At MixerMixer we’ve created a Facebook application but cannot submit it to the Facebook application directory because the app must “have at least 5 users” before it can be submitted. Okay. So I try to share the app with friends, but they don’t get the message because the app is not in the application directory yet! It’s a catch-fucking-22.
All the Facebook documentation says is “It must have at least 5 users”, but nowhere does it explain how to get 5 users to install an app that is not published yet. Damnit Facebook, complete your documentation!
Perhaps I shouldn’t have had a few drinks before attempting to complete the process.
I’ll update this post when I figure out how to get those 5 elusive users.
