Facebook makes games less of a pain in the neck
While it’s always fascinating to read on Facebook that my quasi-friend obtained a new Amulet of Power in WizardQuest…I’m being sarcastic. It’s not fascinating, it’s annoying. Facebook announced changes to gaming on the site yesterday. Now you’ll only see game updates in your feed if you play that game yourself. That is unless you’re a big game player on Facebook, like 200 million people are according to Facebook. If you’re way into games, you get all kinds of updates on all kinds of games. Facebook says users either love Facebook games or hate them, so this move is to help out the haters. Game developers are probably grumpy about losing the viral marketing.
