Facebook and Flash reach new heights

With recent news of Facebook traffic exceeding Google’s traffic a few weeks ago, it is no surprise that the Flash gaming market within Facebook has seen a huge boost in popularity. With over 400 million users, small companies have been been able to reach target audiences with ease.

The popular Facebook Flash-based game FarmVille has exceeded over 83 million users monthly. That is incredible for a Flash based game. Will browser based games continue to soar? And will upcoming technologies such as Silverlight 4 and HTML 5 have a role? Are social media sites going to dominate how users interact with internet services?
