Facebook and Social Gaming Boom

It’s hard to ignore, the fact that everywhere we look social games are popping into our lives. Starting with Mafia Wars and Farmville, this once tiny industry has in just a matter of a couple of years exploded into a multi-billion dollar industry, estimated to reach $2.18 Billion by 2012. And the most unthought aspect, is that the majority of these gamers are women. Surpassing the number of viewers of our biggest prime-time television watchers, social games are obviously here to stay. The ability for innovation within these games also seems limitless, able to link gamers to any brand, website, charities, etc. The things we will see out of the social and Facebook gaming industry over the next few years will no doubt be incredible, the possibilities are endless.

M&M’s Space Heroes

Let’s turn every website we visit into a game. That’s what BBDO Denmark did for the M&M’s brand, they have made any website into their “Space Heroes” internet invasion game. Crazy, right? Brands delivering interactive experiences that are accessible anywhere on the web, and we mean everywhere.

This little gimmick is accomplished through Bookmarklets, which are little Javascript apps that are launched from a bookmark. All you have to do is visit the “M&M’s Space Heroes” website, drag a little spaceship into your bookmark bar, then your ready to play on ANY website you like… Facebook, Google, you name it. Click the bookmark in your browser bar, and you’re playing!
