We are all familiar with the most popular games for the iPhone and iPad, purchase new Xbox and sibling console versions of FIFA and NHL, enjoy playing desktop games like Call of Duty and Minecraft, and recall playing classic Mario Bros. and Tetris. However, are you familiar with Facebook games?
Facebook games very recently came into existence, but they now have 25% of Facebook’s active users. Indeed, a number of benefits distinguish social games from desktop and mobile counterparts:
- they are all free (even those which are paid on mobiles);
- you needn’t install any apps or buy special consoles;
- you can invite your Facebook friends to play with you and see their scores;
- you can stay active on Facebook while gaming.

- having ignored the settings of a game, you may receive tons of notifications in your Facebook account;
- your friends or boss might know what you’re playing (especially during working hours);
- sometimes you’ll need some additional applets or plugins to run a game.
