Facebook Games Replacing TV Leisure
Many people are no longer coming home, turning on the TV, and flipping channels to see what’s on. Instead, they sit down in front of the computer.
Even before checking email, many people now go to Facebook, just to see if anything is new on their home page, or to see which of their friends might be on line. Next, a few minutes is spent commenting on friends’ posts, or taking fun quizzes that their friends have taken.
Next, they check in to their games. In some games, money arrives every hour, and they want to get it to the bank before someone steals it. In other games, they want to buy items, and they only have an opportunity to earn money every six hours. If they already have enough money, they may now be going shopping (in their online game) to relax after work.
There are games for all ages, from kids to grandparents (such as World War II). Some whole extended families play on line at the same time, from different locations. One of the things I enjoy persoanlly is meeting people from all over the world who are playing these interactive games at the same time.
I’ve noticed a transformation in myself taking place since I’ve started playing these games, and since I’ve been using Facebook regularly.
I write six blogs on completely different topics, and I’ve noticed my blogging has really suffered because Facebook is using up all my computer time! What are other people finding?
Just when I thought I’d finally get back to blogging, today I discovered Spy Wars and found that looks pretty interesting……..HELP!!!
