Facebook Numbers, In Picture Form

So if you ever were curious about how big the Facebook has become in the gaming arena, here you go.

The stat that seems to be catching people off guard, but doesn't surprise me, is that 69% of gamers on Facebook are female. Not surprising as women do make up for more then 50% of the gaming market, with an emphasis on casual games. And FarmVille is certainly casual.

Also not surprising that developer Zynga is one of the top on Facebook with FarmVille and Texas HoldEm Poker.

Now how accurate is this study? Well according to the chart, there are up to 265 million Facebook gamers and 290 million play monthly. So the numbers are a little off, but staggering to say the least. Is FarmVille really that addicting? I think I'll stick to Viva Pinata.
