Leading mobile social gaming network OpenFeint has announced a social gaming newsfeed for cross-promotional updates called GameFeed, available now in the OpenFeint SDK. GameFeed's newsfeed provides players with real-time updates across OpenFeint's network of games, providing social information that includes updated player profiles and information from developers. According to the company, 24 beta participants saw sessions-per-user increase by an average of 25 percent, with some showing growth as high as 60 percent. "Sessions per user is a key engagement component of lifetime value and GameFeed significantly increases engagement at no additional cost to developers," said OpenFeint founder and CEO Jason Citron in a statement. More information on GameFeed -- as well as download information for the SDK -- is available on this page.
