About Socialitize Limited
The business currently operated or undertaken by Socialitize is the design, implementation and operation of sports betting as a social gambling game for use through Facebook, known as 2BET2.
2BET2 focuses on sports betting and games built around the concept, combining the lure of sports betting with the social nature of Facebook. It has achieved strong growth on Facebook currently adding over 5000 new players per day.
Players are monetized through a number of complementary strategies. Players may purchase additional BB$ (in-game currency) when they run low or so that they may bet on more events in larger amounts. Players are also encouraged to purchase features and prestige in the game. Socialitize will also pursue referral revenues (where such activity is legal and in accordance with Facebook terms) whereby players who purchase items or spend money at synergistic websites will generate commission revenues for the company. Socialitize will also seek to generate revenues with new group orientated features such as clubs and tournaments, where individuals will be required to subscribe in order to participate.
2BET2 is also available as a web app on Apple iPhone and Android devices and will be released in more formats over coming months. Mobile apps are a core focus for the company.
