Just a day ago Facebook announced that it was making some changes to the way Farmville posts notices to those players who do not play the game.
We just never expected to see Facebook move the notifications move over to Twitter. As of right now Facebook is down and Twitter is alive with Tweets from worried Games Players.
To ensure that those who love “Farmville” and those who can’t stand the constant invitations to play can stay friends, Facebook is making some changes.
People who don’t play a particular game won’t get notices in their news feeds when friends send gifts of pigs or plum trees. Previously, they had to hide or block the game or the players to escape the steady stream of updates.
Facebook will make game updates even more prominent for those who do enjoy tending virtual pastures, taking down rival mob bosses in “Mafia Wars” or cleaning out the fish tank in “Happy Aquarium.”
Today Facebook is down and Twitter is alive with Tweets from worried games players that their crops may be failing, pets dying and some from people just enjoying the pandimonimum it is causing.
