TicketWorld, the country’s most popular online ticket provider, came out with its own Facebook app as a new channel for online ticket sales. The BarkadaTix app, developed by AudienceView Ticketing and launched last April 16, is the first fully integrated Facebook ticketing service in the market.
The app basically lets you purchase and reserve tickets via Facebook. Since it’s on Facebook, BarkadaTix allows you to not only complete ticket transactions, but also to share them with your friends. The Buy & Reserve feature of the app also allows you to place reservations next to purchased seats, so you and your pals can sit next to each other.
TicketWorld president Robert Sewell shared that the BarkadaTix app is their effort to bring the tickets closer to the consumers by making it available where they thrive online—Facebook. With the Philippines being the world’s 8th largest Facebook community, TicketWorld anticipates BarkadaTix to become a successful online social ticketing gateway.
