The numbers are small, but that's what you expect when you're 20, you're broke, and you've only ever released 5 simple apps in you life. I post the download numbers of all my apps every Saturday on my blog.
Here's an experience with advertising on Facebook from the perspective of someone who's never done any advertising before. Actually someone who doesn't have a product to sell yet either!
As an indie in college I still have a lot to learn. I'm documenting my methods and lessons so novices can learn and practice with me. Here I'm writing about making a map using MS Paint & Gimp then importing it into Unity for use with the 2D Toolkit.
Recent frustrations with school made me remember a particular episode of Extra Creditz involving the gamification of school systems. I really think we'd be better off if schools used positive reinforcement and made a cooperative game out of learning.
