In a release this morning, Facebook says that over 250 million of its users play games on its service. Roughly 20 percent of its daily users play some type of game when logged into the site. If that is not a wake up call to all game developers, then the monetary figures sure will be.

 

Over 100 game developers made $1 million last year from Facebook games alone, with the totality of all Facebook gaming developers splitting roughly $2 billion in revenue last year. Android and iOS developers are taking note too with over 55 percent of the top 400 iOS games having Facebook integration.
