  1. I am definitely surprised by how many users Zynga’s CityVille has generated in such a short time. I thought the CityVille game was just a copy of FarmVille and didn’t think it would do as well as it is now. After reading this I am interested in trying out CityVille to see what it’s about. This is great news for Zynga because FarmVille is definitely one of the most popular games online right now.

    1. It’s amazing how far Facebook has come in such a short period. It just goes to show that if the product is right, once it gets on social media, users will definitely be attracted.

  2. If you like farmville and this things, I found other big and excellent game. In this game yuo have to pretend to be a wine producer. Is diferent, is new and you must to share it with your friends because you need to sell your own wines.

  3. I am quite surprised at how popular CityVille has become. I just saw the other day that there are now over 100 million monthly users! Zynga really nailed it with CityVille. My question is what might they be able to release that could top CityVille? CityVille sure blew FarmVille away!
