Novi Sad, Serbia, 2011/07/19 - Version of FB Limiter, application used to block access to Facebook, is released. Number of downloads surpassed expectations - FacebookLimiter.com / AxiomCoders.com.
AxiomCoders announced that it got more than 10,000 downloads on the first day of launching free version of FB Limiter, software that is used to block Facebook access on computer.
“We were expecting some high downloads after releasing free version of FB Limiter but this just went far above our expectations.”, said marketing manager Marko Vujatovic on press conference held in company headquarters.
FB Limiter, one of the leading software when it comes to blocking Facebook access on computers, is out on the market for more than a year now, but up till now it was available only as shareware application. AxiomCoders, producer of FB Limiter, decided to take another approach in marketing and released free version of FB Limiter.
“By examining feedback we got from our users, we decided to split FB Limiter into free version, with the most common options, and the FB Limiter Pro version, which has more advanced features. As it is usually done in those cases FB Limiter Pro version is still the one we charge for.”, said marketing manager during the conference.
FB Limiter comes with simple installation, it has much improved ways to block Facebook now and it could be used to block access to YouTube as well. It is worth telling that all major proxies that enable reaching Facebook or YouTube sites will be, also, blocked. It also has a much more sophisticated way of blocking and is near impossible to be circumvented.
Free version of FB Limiter comes with “Normal Lock” feature which acts as a toggle button that blocks Facebook/YouTube.
“Such a great number of downloads just proves that people want to put some control on accessing Facebook. Some were probably skeptic on paying for the software which had more features they would actually need, and that reason most likely explains why FB Limiter’s free version got this much attention on the first day.”, said marketing manager.
FB Limiter users (facebooklimiter.com) are given the chance to try any of FB Limiter Pro features on a 7 days trial basis directly from the main application window. Some of the features of FB Limiter Pro include “Time Lock”,“Duration Lock” and “Total Lock” blockage mechanisms.
