Over 230 million people play on Facebook each month
Zynga and other guests while they fight over copyright issues on Facebook have no problem with people who spend many hours in front of the little games. According to new statistics, during the last 30 days there were over 230 million people playing in the social network, either from the ancient Tower Blox to any of the Zynga Ville.

At the same time period, more than 150 million people went directly from Facebook to Apple’s App Store or Google Play, and 8 of the 10 highest-grossing iOS applications have direct integration with Facebook.

Doug Purdy says that since the beginning of the network realized that there were many things that would be meaningful to its users, but they would not be able to build all those experiences and that is why they focused on their platform development easy for you to rest.
