The effectiveness of call centers can be measured by the amount of people they can connect with. It means that call centers can provide support for as many incoming connection types as possible. A successful company's call center can be reached by using a traditional telephone, an IP phone set, a softphone or even a webphone client.

Facebook applications can be easily used for reaching more people, especially for letting people call your company call center. For this purpose, you only need to create a webphone application on Facebook that can connect to your call center.
For creating a Facebook application, you can use different methods. First of all you will need to validate your Facebook account with your phone or Visa number, then you will be able to create applications.
Webphone applications can be defined on Facebook by using two application types, the Canvas and the Web application. Both can be used with Flash and Silverlight solutions, and if you want to reach the most customers it is suggested to use both.
For more information about how you can create a Canvas application, please visit the Facebook to SIP calls page. This page shows the basic steps for creating the application. If you want to know more about Facebook integration, you may also consider reading the following pages:

When you want to reach a call center from a Facebook application, the best way is to create a click to call solution that will use a SIP account but can only call one phone number. You can, of course use the simple solutions of fully featured softphone applications and give the call center number to the customers who install the application.
Training guides, simple examples

Whatever Facebook application you create the most important thing is to run the server on a public address where the clients can reach it. When a client connects, they can call the call center server as they used any other solution, but in this case they call you from a Fecebook site.
Facebook provides hosting service for your applications, but in the case of a call center, it is suggested to use your own hosting services for this purpose.
When you have created the webphone application, you need to make sure that the server runs as the webphone will use that to connect to your call center.
