TSSG will be presenting for the first time Fuseami (www.fuseami.com). Fuseami is a back-end as a service (BaaS) platform for mobile application developers to enable them to create dynamic social and community based apps. Fuseami stands for the Fusion of geo, social, and Ambient Intelligence capabilities, as a service, to enable developers to easily create applications that include smart geofenced environments or dynamic social communities on the fly. Fuseami also provides developers with an advanced “Similarity Engine” that can be used to identify commonalities between users based on interests and provide a variety of relevance-based services. Fuseami is a product developed by the TSSG (www.tssg.org) and builds on years of advanced research into context based mobile services and prior mobile spinouts such as FeedHenry (www.feedhenry.com)
TSSG will also be presenting FRAGD, a kick-ass community where core console & PC gamers can track their achievements, chat with friends, create clans & tournaments, and most importantly, get free or discounted stuff based on their influence within the community and across social media. Our influence algorithm adds social activity to your gamer profile to determine not only how good you play but also your social reach amongst your peers. No longer will marketers have to take a shotgun to the gamer community and try to flog their message in non-core ways via paid search and display ads as FRAGD will provide the laser that brands desire to directly engage the most influential gamers within their target demographic.
