ChessCube Launches Live Chess Application in Facebook

admin

Cape Town, South Africa – 24 November 2009. ChessCube, the popular live chess platform, launches a live chess application in Facebook. Facebook users can add the application to their profile, and play with Facebook friends, ChessCube friends or any player on ChessCube.

ChessCube’s live chess application allows users to connect with even more players, and play live chess from within Facebook. With about 2,000 players online at any given time, anyone will be able to find a game at the right skill level.

There are several chess playing applications on Facebook, but very few of them offer live chess. The ones that offer live chess tend to have very few players online. ChessCube offers chess players of all levels a superlative experience with about 2,000 players online and a strong chess community. ChessCube also allows games to be played between all players, no matter whether they are using the Facebook application, or the website.

Mark Levitt, ChessCube CEO says: “We are very excited to launch our first Facebook Application. Facebook is a new way for chess players to connect with the vibrant ChessCube community.”

The ChessCube chess application may be found in Facebook’s app directory, or logged-in Facebook users can go to http://apps.facebook.com/chesscube/. Existing ChessCube members can link their Facebook profile to their ChessCube profile, while new members can register with ChessCube.

ChessCube expects that this new application will add to their considerable user growth.
