LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Ticketmaster has unveiled a fully functioning ticketing app designed to work with Facebook's Timeline, and according to Ticketmaster is the only fully functioning ticketing app on Facebook.
The app allows music fans to browse browse events, view events their friends are attending, read reviews, build their own upcoming show list by using the “I want to go” feature, RSVP to let their friends know which events they are attending and purchase any Ticketmaster ticket directly through Facebook.
