The people who play Farmville have a great surprise in store for them this week with all of the new items that the popular Facebook game offers. There are now new collections, themes, and technical changes to intensify the player’s experience.
New Farmville items include additions to the Wild West theme that has been going on for some time now. Players can now collect toys such as ABC blocks, duck toys, jacks, marbles, train whistles, and paddle balls. Each of these toys has different rarities and players need a different number of each items. They can find these items by seeding their plowed land or by using their Farm Cash to purchase them. When they find these items, they will have the option of posting it onto their wall so that their friends will be able to claim one as well.
Another new Farmville trick added this week: Players can now send more gifts to a larger amount of their friends. In the past, the number of friends you could send gifts daily was limited. Now that limit has been raised to fifty friends each day. The Wild West theme has grown drastically this week. Users can now purchase a Western Longhorn, Wild West Fort, Blacksmith, Wild West Stream, Gold Panning, Wanted Post, Tumbleweed and so much more. However, these new Farmville items will only be accessible for a limited period of time.
Farmville users will no longer be bored with the monotony of the seeding, plowing and harvesting since there are now new things they can do and items they can collect. It was a smart move from Zynga and one that will probably push Farmville into even more success in the gaming world.
Facebook Last Year (2009) Income – 800 Million Dollars
Facebook has topped the expectations in 2009 by realizing nearly 800 million dollars income last year, ABC News reported referring to two unnamed sources. Insiders also revelaed that the social media community has gained 10 million dollars operating profit last year. The 800 million dollars revenue has far exceeded the company’s expectations.
Facebook – which has almost 500 million registered users now – was started as a closed network of university students in 2004. The social media announced in 2009 that its financial balance has turned to posititive, realizing more income than expenditure. At the same year analysts estimated 500 million dollars of the company’s earnings. Although, privacy scandals have cracked the company’s reputation plenty of times recently, the number of registered users and advertisers are steadily growing.
Experts believe, the success in Facebook’s advertising platform is that the large general advertising campaigns can find their ways to their target groups just like smaller, highly specialized marketing campaigns.
Facebook regularly rejects buying and investing offers, while the business world is waiting for the company’s introduction in the stock markets. However, this move is unlikely now, because Facebook is able to finance its agressive expansion from its own revenues. Besides the founders, the company’s shareholders are Microsoft, the Russian Digital Sky Technologies, the Hong Kong based billionaire Li Ka-Shing and other venture capital groups.

Court: Pakistan can unblock Facebook with right filter
A Pakistani court has ruled that the government can unblock Facebook if the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority takes measures to block any objectionable material on the social networking site, a lawyer involved in the case said.
Chaudhary Zulfiqar Ali, a lawyer representing the Islamic Lawyers Movement, which initially petitioned the court to block Facebook, said the next hearing for the case will be June 15.
On that day, the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority will explain to the court how it plans to block objectionable material on Facebook and other websites.
An official from the Pakistan Telecommunication Authority said that Facebook will be unblocked immediately after the court delivers a written order.
Pakistan blocked the site May 19 in response to an online group that called on people to draw depictions of the Prophet Mohammed, officials said Wednesday. Drawing depictions of the prophet is forbidden to followers of Islam; devout Muslims consider such depictions offensive.
The Telecommunication Authority issued the order a day before “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day,” scheduled by a Facebook group with the same name, because of “the objectionable material” on the site, said Khoram Ali Mehran of the Telecommunication Authority.
Meanwhile, nearby Bangladesh also blocked access to Facebook over the weekend, after government officials said satirical cartoons of the prophet and the country’s leaders were uploaded.
