Aside from the data mining abilities of Facebook, I see nothing wrong with it. For some people, yes it's a ridiculous obsession. However, everything
in moderation won't kill you.
Plus, why in the world would you play a game like Farmville, or any craptasstic game they provide?

One may think you are an active gamer as you find the many games on FB to be "craptasstic". But you may feel all gaming is a time-water, so I don't
want to assume you prefer the sophisticated play people enjoy on the modern consoles.
I think people play Farmville and the roster of games that increases monthly on FB just for fun, for entertainment. Some people check their FB after
work and unwind on a few games, just like guys that like to play poker or PlayStation. Pass the time, have some fun. People can play for free or pay
in if they choose to, and many do.
There are a lot of parents and grand-parents that spend time online with their children and grand-children. They have a good time, and there is
built-in appeal for different ages, just like with cartoons.
I've read plenty of online articles about players obsession with WOW, violent war games, shooter simulations with graphic depictions, games that
glorify lawlessness and ultra-violence and other games, and I wonder why people would play those.
