Social networking has long been a favorite among teenagers and young adults. Developed as a way to connect people with similar interest or even those with long lost connections, the various social networking sites have seen an explosion in popularity over the past several years. Almost everyone has a FaceBook or MySpace page, so much so that many people use it to keep up with each other’s lives. The phrase “I saw that on your FaceBook page” is more popular than ever. Recently senior citizens have begun joining in, touching base with long lost friends and making new ones. Senior social networking is on the rise.
FaceBook is literally loaded with applications and games. From building a farm to city living, many of these games are ‘Sim’ like adventures, allowing you to control various aspects of your avatar and their environment.
