Facebook may have begun as a way to keep tabs on other college students but it’s evolved over the years into one of the largest gaming platforms ever created. Millions of people log in every day to play popular games such as Farmville and Mafia Wars, while others play Texas Hold Em poker or puzzle games such as Bejeweled. With tens of thousands of Facebook games available — and nearly all of them free to play — there are plenty of options to choose from no matter what type of game you prefer.
Love it or hate it, Farmville is one of the most popular and addictive Facebook games out there, letting players maintain and expand their farming operations with a variety of add-ons and help from their Facebook friends. You get all you need for your basic farm but many add-ons cost additional Facebook coints that can be purchased.

3. Bejeweled Blitz
