Living in a virtual world

Recently I have being fully hooked onto social networking site called facebook. Now you must be thinking, whats the big deal about that? now everyone is into social networking site, be it orkut, hi5 or facebook. Let me tell you, around 2007 I had joined facebook but found it so very confusing, with so many things happening at once, that I decided not to use it at all. Infact I never used it until last month. I decided to give it a try again. But like many, I don't use it for keeping in touch with friends, but for playing games. Yeah I am full time playing farmville, fishville, word challenge and mafia wars.Now all of these games are actually silly ( atleast in my opinion). But somehow the excitement to gain more points and purchasing power, I feel elated. I know its silly, but really once your an addict, its difficult to get rid of an addiction. So In facebook terms, I am now a virtual farmer,virtual fisheries owner and an underworld mafia Don. I keep playing word challenge inorder to reach the 10,000 mark, hopefully I will reach it by this year. I hardly scrap or comment any one or should I say, leave a message on their wall in facebook, cos I am so hooked on with my silly virtual games.

Frankly speaking I don't like so many changes in my life, but if I think otherwise, If changes don't take place, life would become too boring!! what you say guys and gals??

social networking sites might be an option for you guys but it has become a necessity in this part of the world. We cant quite picture life without it anymore... I wonder if that is a good thing... hehe

@Seher: hahaha :) yes i read your answers immediately when it was posted but was in a hurry and couldn't post a reply to that until now.

@Apocalypse : Yeah I have learned that. I am glad you liked my previous post.

@Akansha agarwal: for starters I suggest you start with farmville.but don't get addicted like me!!

moi said...

@mayz: I think even you should start playing in fb. just kidding. yeah we are confused when new silly things are shown to us.

@raaji : I know everyone wants to know whats the other person is doing or some one will put up a snap saying "my house" snaps or "my pet snaps".life revolves around social networking site for many.
