For those with larger sites and lots of participation this is a great app that rewards the person who has participated the most on your page. It comes with a tab with the fan of the week’s face and posts to the page wall at the same time every week so people will know when to look.
Similar to the aforementioned app, Booshaka has a table of the top fans of the week and is calculated on comments, likes and posts. It even has a history of every fans participation on your page and allows you to track rising or falling fans.
Changes (once again) in Facebook’s algorithm mean that it’s allowing third party postings from this app, as well as TweetDeck and HootSuite. Though it is recommended always to post manually, these apps are useful for some automated posting now and again.
