    Mafia wars has been so much on the hit list of people using Facebook. However, I have never tried that application and do not know the reason why? But now that you have listed it amongst the 7 must try applications on Facebook, I think I should try it as soon as possible.

    Great post on FB apps. Slideshare is already my favourite app. I love using it for sharing PDFs and read useful PDFs loaded by other users. I have gained some good organic traffic to my sites from SlideShare. I never knew Causes before reading your valuable post, I think I must try it as it looks another interesting app. Bookmarking your post to come back for more interesting stuff.Thanks-Natasha
