Are you still addicted to FarmVille?
On Facebook, FarmVille is the top game this year with over 26 Million active users, 3 times biggest than the second most active, Cafe World.
Last December, I asked readers how long they’d think Facebook becomes old, and a lot of the responses points to the games as a major attracting feature. No wonder Zynga keeps on buying Facebook App Development companies out there.
Since FarmVille is the largest random sampling for Facebook activity, we can somewhat use it as a yardstick to monitor the trend of usage on the social networking site.
If that 26 Million daily active users keep on growing or if a new game emerges and surpasses that number, then the growth is still moving up. With over 8 million Facebook
users accounts from the Philippines, we could be seeing a plateau really soon (this was in the vicinity of the number of Friendster users when it also plateaued). Nevertheless, telcos will continue to feel the pain of losing millions of pesos due to shifting communication channels (FB messages over SMS).
So, going back to the question — Are you still addicted to FarmVille? I stopped tending to my farm like months ago.
