    I really like your starting ! Off you go and poof you went ! Anyway, I am really shocked that a mother killed her child for disturbing him. No wonder ! How addicting can Facebook or Farm ville be. I was a big fan once, I was playing like crazy. Checking out my account as soon as I got home, playing Farm ville for 3 or 4 hours. But one day, I realized that I was just wasting time. I told myself to stop and focus on blogging. After that I have never really played Farm ville. I lost interest in it. Nowadays when I see my mom playing it, I just tell her that it is just a waste of time. (and she knows it !). Farmville is a big problem. My opinion is that Facebook should ban all its application (even then Zynga would run it on their website).

    I just wished that they would stop all this nonsense. Anyway, Great Article. Also thanks for the tip @ the end. It might not be useful to me right now, but it may, one day !

      Hey Jeevan,Nice to see you here again :). Thanks for sharing your FarmVille story and your thoughts in general. I can totally see how all these games can become addictive – like any other games on the net or even in real life. I tried playing FV for a few days, then oddly enough I got bored with it. But I will admit that it was rather entertaining for those few days – except for all those trees I collected – those I found a bit dull haha! In general I’m not very active with FB games and applications.I guess they could be a waste of time, but sometimes that’s just what we need to do – waste some time doing something that doesn’t require too much energy or thought. I sincerely doubt FB would do something like ban apps and games – I mean why would they? It’s apparent that many people seem to enjoy them. I say – whatever floats your boat and to each his own :). I would simply hope that it’s within reason.That story about the mom is indeed disturbing. I keep thinking that there has to be more to it. That can’t possible be the reason. I really want to give this woman the benefit of the doubt on the whole FarmVille thing but how can I? What she did – there are no words for!I’m glad you liked this post and that my hook got ya lol ;). Even though I made this somewhat entertaining and even sometimes irrelevant to backing up your account (the first part) – I do think it is a good idea to back up. Your life won’t end and it’s not a catastrophe of any kind if you lose your FB data, but it sure as hell would be annoying to try and recreate everything.Happy weekend to you!
      Keep up your awesome work and great guest post on Famous Bloggers by the way.Cheers

    Geez she killed her own child because of farmville? huh? I took a look at her, she seems kind of …, well, freaky. Yeah I can imagine what some of them would do! Thanks for the backup tip, I think I’ll pass it on to the addicts before they start calling asking for last minute remedy. Cheers!
