Facebook Gives 15-25 Free Game Credits



By Bryan Sanders posted Jul 16th, 2010 at 5:05PM

[Update]

Facebook free credits come in various amounts depending on the user. I have seen 15, 20, and 25 credits given for free. Each credit is valued at 0.10 cents USD.

Check your Facebook account to see how many credits you received. I play a lot of applications and I received 20 free credits. I cannot tell you if the credits are random or depend on how frequently you play game apps on Facebook.

Free Credits for Facebook Apps

Open a game application in Facebook today and you might notice a pop-up that says “Facebook Gave You (various amount) Free Credits”. Gamers can use these free credits to buy premium items in your favorite games.

My 20 free credits are valued at $2.00 USD. Is this a marketing strategy to keep users happy and keep them away from the upcoming Google Games? I’m not sure but whatever it is, thank you Facebook. Enjoy gamers!

Pirate Bay introduces ‘Pirate Date’



Pirate Date is a new social style dating website. The Pirate Bay’s new project: Pirate Date uses social networks like Facebook to connect you to potential dates. The new dating site is said to be better than other dating sites because their profiles are “real”. Let’s hope this is true because I am single and on dating sites full of fake profiles.

The dating sites that I am using are well known. Users can receive spam, phishing emails and other forms of fraud from these fake profiles. Pirate Date uses real and trusted profiles from your connected Facebook network and other networks.


Pirate Date says

No more fake profiles, fake information, fake pictures. We use a system of “social trust” that allows members to vouch for each other and verify that our crew (aka friends) are real, single and trustworthy.

PirateDate provides safer sailing through the waters of online dating with a unique slew of social dating features. How is it so different?


Facebook Twitter Application (update)



Update: Facebook has been blocking this feature. Facebook has admitted to blocking the application but will not discuss the details of why they are doing so.

The new Facebook Twitter app allows users to find their friend’s Twitter accounts and follow them. There is also a similar LinkedIn application on Facebook.

Zynga launches FrontierVille!



By Bryan Sanders update posted Jul 15th, 2010 at 06:57PM

[Update] FrontierVille Surpasses 20 Million Users


Zynga’s FrontierVille


Calling all FarmVille fans…. Zynga launches a brand new game called FrontierVille. FrontierVille is a western themed game similar to FarmVille but this time you’re a pioneer. The game is a Beta version at the moment so expect some bugs.

You start the game by customizing your character exactly like the one in FarmVille except you can choose western clothing. The game is set on your plot of land with a lot of trees, grass, a wagon, bones and more. You collect different items like coins, stars (XP) or a piece of pie buy clicking on the right interactive item. You can buy energy to clear more land.

The wagon is fully customizable to suit your style. You may also feed animals for coins and XP. Head to the market to buy animals, decor and other items to make your land look the way you choose. The point of the game is to clear your land and make land improvements.

There are also goals set for clearing land such as: clear 3 tall grasses and cut down 2 trees to gain bonuses. Beware of those pesky varmints like groundhogs and rattlesnakes that jump out and try to ruin your day. The game becomes RPG like by letting you punch the rattlesnake or groundhog to keep them from attacking.

So far it is a pretty fun game and since this is beta there will be improvements and bug fixes soon. Check it out on Facebook.
