Team Facebook for European social games Facebook, the world’s largest social network, is currently looking into getting more and more people on board the Facebook bandwagon – never mind they already have more than 850 million users and counting. In fact, it is no secret that Mark Zuckerberg is working hard to crack into China’s market, having learned the language himself, and most recently, was spotted trying to make friends with Jeremy Lin himself in real life at a basketball game. Having said that, most of the world still subscribes to the adage that all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, which is why casual games on the social network has proved to be quite the catalyst as a growth driver. Titles like Angry Birds certainly do a lot to boost the social network’s profile, and this has led Facebook to assemble their own dedicated gaming team in Europe in order to match its US counterpart, where this new force will work more closely with social games developers across the European continent. Will a similar move result in same results on a different continent? Only time will tell.
