A study has been done that says 1 in EVERY 5 Americans has played at least one game (like Mafia Wars or Cafe World) online in a social network such as Facebook and Myspace.  Why do you think these games has become so popular in the last three years?  What factors determine whether you will play games on these sites EVEN if you’re not a gamer? (AND THIS HAS NOTHING to do with X-Box 360 or Playstation3 or Wii) Why or why not?

    i think that these games in the last three years have been so boring . because everyone wants to play them . people at Google Inc. needs to get some new games on these social networks. i think these games have become so popular because a lot of people go to Google.

    well iv’e never played game’s on face book or myspace because i don’t find them very interesting. I think it’s because some people set home & they have nothing to do so they play game’s on the computer, but other’s play game’s to get away from life trouble’s. Iv’e never found theses game’s fun but other’s like younger kid’s do !

    The games have become such a big hit within the past couple years, because they make new games all the time. More and more people like to try them out. (Mostly when they have nothing else to do & they just sit on facebook all day). When some people see that others have played that game, or it looks interesting, they decide to sit there and play it.

    I think one of the reasons these games are so popular is because there fun to play and they give people something to do and they might just be entertaining
    for people. I think the factors would be if they sound like a fun game or an entertaining game to play even if your not a gamer.

    i think the only reason its popular is just because its on myspace and facebook. alot of people get on both of those websites sometimes just to play games but most of the time to talk to people. and its just somehthing to do when your bored and none of your friends are on. none of those games are fun to me. so my opinon to that is just because alot of people get on there.

    i think its cuz it looks fun and when your bored and have nothing else to do then you play games and you really start to like them and you keep on playing them then it might make have some other game that you might like on it and start playing games more

    i think these people plat these games is because its a socail website and they mainly just talk and have conversations on there so they see all these adds on there about those games and they just try them out and play them. and when people start to play those games to pass time while there having conversations they get addicted and like to play them all the time and then they try to get you to have to buy points or coins with a credit card sot ehy can make extra money.its esay to get addicted to the internet.

    i think there poplua beacuse alot of people get on face book. so alot of people instead of just texting people and listen to music you can play games. so people have more fun with face book than myspace now. and people lik games and people play all day and they play because it can be like all o my god i love this game and they play it alot.

    ii think that the reason the games has became so popular is becauase the site has became so popular Ex: The web site Facebook in the last year has became one of the most known sites and everybody gets on there to meet new people and if there is not some one online they know or get to know the tend to play games on there to past time.

    i think that the reason that people play games on myspace or facebook
    is because there friends are on so they play games.playing games on the computer are not for me

    I think they are so popular because millions of people are on facebook and myspace every day. Trying new things is fun. Words go around fast if someone says a game on a social website is fun you want to try it. This is why I think people use these games!

    i htink they are popular because facebook has become very popular in the last year. so the people like to play the games.

    i think these games have became so popular because this site that people are chating on they have found these games and have began to play them such as like a habbit like xbox360 or other game systems.

    I think they have become more popular because of the amount of time people spend on the computers chatting is way to much. and when people get bored chatting they can click the game and still chat at the same time.

    i think the games became pouplar because every body gets on facebook and are like after a while it gets a little boring so they put games on there so people will spend more time on there and will have more fun on face book. ;P

    I think games on facebook and myspace are so popular because when people are on there they always send you stuff to try and make you play games on there with you were they can get more stuff on there games and then more people start playing it then alot of people start playing games!

    i think they have become so popular because people has got on and they told theirs friends about it and that friend told his/her friends and everybody started to get on.myspace and facebook is a place were u can get on and just be your self. if u dont have a cell phone just get on myspace/facebook and talk to all your friends on the computers!

    I think that games on facebook and myspace are more popular. Because all there friends can play if they have a myspace or facebook they can play for free. Or you can buy a ps3 and have to pay alot of money or play a game with all your friends

    i think people play these games because its on poplur website and they think that if those websites are fun they will enjoy playing the games. i whould not want to play the games because most of the time you have to give your information and i wold not want to give out my information because someone could hack you or tack you down.

    i think that people play these games because there firends all play it. they are just board at home. some people find playing games away to get out of lifes troubles. i dont like these games but that is only my opnion…

    They have become popular because more people have figured out face book and myspace. More people have joined too.

    i would play these game on computers like quake 3 and mafia wars if there is not like any thing else to do on the computer

    i think i will never get on those because myspace is stupid. i dont know why they have been so populure in the past three years. maybe they put more games on it or something. so that is what i think. do you got that.


  31. Sean Roberts
    Nov 22, 2010 @ 13:31:52

    I think because people just catch on to play en one of these games. Like maybe one of there friends are probably playing the game. Or they was a little curious about one of those games. So they decide to check one of them out. Or they see it all the time on one of the social networks being advertised all the time

    i think these games have become so popular because people like them. they get bored and they have nothing better to do. they play these games to see what they are like. they are curious and want to see what they are. people are on the internet a lot more than they used to be.

    Well Facebook and Myspace are both very popular websites. What I think happens is that a friend reccomends the game to another friend and so on and so on. As more people reccomend it, more people play it. As more people play it, more people get hooked to it and then they reccomend it to their friends. Since a lot of people get on these sites, a lot of people play it and reccomend it.

    Nov 22, 2010 @ 13:44:49

    i think maybe they were really borred. and maybe they knew somone who has played it before, so they just decidded to try it out and see what it is..


  35. Dustin B
    Nov 22, 2010 @ 13:47:43

    i think it has became so popular because people get on the internet and play the games. we are not busy. what might determine if you play is because people might be interested and want to play with their friends.

    i actually play cafe world last summer and it was pretty fun. i do have a myspace.com and facebook.com. I think people play these games because they get bored and it’s fun. at it’s a virtual world that you can do what ever you want. Also people are really lazy now-a-days.

    people are able to make new friends and have a game were your able to chat and play at the same time

    I think they should get more games. Because when you are bored you get on youtube , facebook , myspace ,etc and websites put more games. Then kids like some people in the class that is a nerd and likes playing games , will play it lol [=

    i think they have became popular because it’s like real life. and i don’t know what factors because i am not much of a website gamer. but back to this reality stuff some people have boring lives so they escape that by becoming someone else or some people are entertained by this and enjoy it a lot. either way i think whatever that game is that your talking about could be enjoyable for all types of people. if you gave it a try.
