People Spend 927 Million Hours Per Month Playing Facebook Games

This is truly crazy data: 290 million people play Farmville and other Facebook games—five of the top 10 are by Zynga—every month. Combined, that's 4,406 years worth of play time—or 105,878 man-years milking virtual cows.

I really don't get facebook gamers. I mean, I play Bejeweled on FB but only for 5-10 minutes before I log out and do something else!

In less than 10 minutes, you can make a small change to make the world better. That sounds better than watering non-existant crops right?
