Social network gaming
A social network game is nothing but an online game that is played using social media sites, and typically features asynchronous and multi-player gameplay mechanisms. Most commonly, social network games are browser based but are completely from the regular browser games because of their usage of player?s social graph and user data. The social networking games have become mobile and cross-platform with the increase in mobile smartphone users.
Famous social gaming companies include Zynga and King, who have gone public to improve their scope, and Wooga, Playfish and Playdom. In the second quarter of 2012, Facebook made more than 118.4 million US dollars through advertisements and virtual currency revenues of Zynga.
Candy Crush Sage is also the most played game developed by King, UK-based developer. This was launched as a Facebook game in April 2012, and even published as a standalone mobile app in Nov 2012. In july 2014, it?s the top grossing iOS gaming app whose revenue is close to 1 million US dollars per day. The developer King has 481 million active mobile gaming users per month, including other Facebook titles like Farm Ville Saga and Bubble Witch Saga, all of which are perfectly monetized using in-game purchases.
