However, Facebook has a lot more games available, like FarmVille, YoVille and Mafia Wars just to mention a few. According to an analyst in Techology Business Research, Ezra Gottheil, it is a natural combo, since people like to play against their friends and then compare the results.

“There’s always been a social aspect to gaming, and games as a part of social networks,” said Gottheil. “Of course, the vendors of both types of products like to capitalize on the synergies. So when a popular game lands on a popular site, that’s good for both the game and the site.”

Google+ launched their games last August and Angry Birds was one of the first games available on Google’s social networking site. Facebook was also more aggressive in August last year when it comes to games, giving players a separate stream to show their high scores, as well as their friends gaming activity.
