Facebook is arguably the most popular social networking website in the planet. It has millions of active users and currently sits at second place just after Google in Alexa’s website traffic rankings.
Facebook is a great way to meet new friends and stay connected with the old ones. As of early 2010, Facebook had already surpassed its competitor Myspace and had also overcome Friendster — the former dominant social utility in Asia.
Facebook’s meteoric rise can perhaps be attributed to its innovative yet simple, easy and fun applications.
Here below is a list of my top Facebook applications;
If you are environment-friendly and you once dreamed of living a life in the country fields, planting crops, raising farm animals and maintaining your own ranch Farmville is a great game for you.

So, you’re planning to have your own Starbucks in the near future. Why not try Cafe World?

This game tests various aspects of your intellect such as your analytical ability, mathematical skills and memory. Most people will see this as boring but not the ones who stay at libraries all day long or those who turn their face into horrible grimaces inside their personalized laboratory.
One of the oldie but goodies when it comes to arcade games, Crazy Taxi can serve as a virtual simulation of those guys at night who are driving under the influence of alcohol.
