Facebook has become a popular social networking site to the young generation. Don’t have anything to do? Let’s play Facebook games. This is the common trend of the present generation. Facebook games have spread in the tech market like wild fire making it the favorite pastime for many. Zynga, the renowned manufacturer of social networking sites, have reported that games like Zynga Poker, FarmVille and CityVille records around 271 million users every month. Just imagine!
