Well, Star Trek has happen. The Computer Age is in full effect. We are getting that much closer to being cyborgs. The Nielsen Co. is reporting via SFGate that:
Americans are spending a quarter of their Internet time on Facebook or other social networking sites, while online video games have passed sending e-mail as the second most popular online activity.
I talked briefly about how the Video Game Industry is relevant in a previous post and although I was looking at it from a historical perspective, here goes more evidence. It’s interesting to note that social networking games played on Facebook like Farmville (created by San Francisco company Zynga Game Network) are being considered the new place to play video games, like a Playstation or XBox 360. When they talk about on-line games they are not solely talking about games like Madden or FIFA they are talking about the social networking sites.
But, shhhhh, don’t tell anyone. People might start freaking out once they realize the world in turning into a land of geeks.
And, they are one of them.
