Did You Know: Farmville

Did you know that there's more "Farmers" on Farmville than there farmers is in real life? (In The U.S.)



It's estimated that for every 60 Farmville Farmers there's 1 real farmer here in the united States.

That's a lot of players, um I mean "Farmers" on Farmville.

Have you ever played it? If not (consider yourself lucky) it consists of is you, as a farmer on a your own digital farm where your facebook friends are your neighbors (who also work on a farm)
yep that's it. So, you plant seeds, wait, harvest your fruits or veggies, repeat.
Oh, and There are animals too, you buy or "find" them and you raise them, wait, harvest their goods (eggs, milk, ect.) and yeah you make money by harvesting, to buy more seeds, animals and land.
Not the most exciting game in the world, but hey people enjoy it. That's why it's currently the Facebook app with the most members.

I've got to hand it to Zynga, they've made a successful Facebook app in which the main objective of the game is to do something that people may not want to do in real life.
