I was in the midst of consolidating all my articles and working out on the structure of my site when I started playing farmville and farmtown. In a week or so, I dropped farmtown because it’s too tedious and I don’t like the graphics. I continued playing farmville (FV) though (see FV or FT article).
Another game on Facebook that caught my attention was cafe world (CW). It’s interesting because you get to set up (which includes building and renovating the cafe) and manage your own virtual “cafe”. It helps people think on strategies on how to balance things like increasing the profit at the same time providing good customer service.
FV and CW are fun and educational because it provides an avenue for people who don’t have a business to learn the ropes and have a feel on what it’s like to run a business. Inspite of that, I decided to stop playing FV and CW because I realized I’ve been spending more time in the virtual world than in the real world.
For those who managed to balance both worlds, I salute you! Aja!
