Social Games Business Model


At GDC this year, it was hard to avoid the new infatuation with social gaming on Facebook as a means to make money. Thus far, I haven’t been all that convinced. We heard the same thing a year or so ago about iPhone games and there are very few people making any sustainable living on games alone on the iPhone. This posting is about the closest I’ve seen to a rationale for why a company might seriously consider writing a Facebook game: One winner or many? how the business of social games may be differently different.
