Facebook's 2014 Games of the Year

by Daniel Morris - December 9, 2014 at 5:00am
It’s that time of year where we highlight the games on Facebook that define our platform and captivate our players. 2014 saw a revival of the classic match-3 puzzle genre and the continued health of the social casino category. New game launches from Asia and Europe continue to grow, bringing both new ideas and cherished, recognizable brands to the Facebook platform.
The games on these lists were selected based on player ratings, strength of Facebook implementation, growth, and overall quality. Although we've singled out one new game that stands above the rest as the Game of the Year, the games listed in the other categories are not ranked in any particular order (instead they are listed alphabetically). Best New Games represent the remaining nine (Cookie Jam leading the list to make ten) cream-of-the-crop titles that came out in 2014, while Best Mobile Games showcases top mobile apps that effectively use Facebook Login. Back by popular demand, the Staff Favorites list features games most played around our office, while Hall of Fame recognizes games that launched prior to 2014.
Of note this year, King, one of the largest developers on Facebook's platform, landed multiple titles on our lists. We also saw some great brands, like Kim Kardashian, being harnessed to attract new players.

Facebook's 2014 Game of the Year:

  • Cookie Jam - This colorful matching game proved that the genre is far from over for Facebook. Launching last May, and rising to well over 5 million players in only a matter of months, SGN’s sweets-themed title swept all others to become the Game of the Year.

Facebook's 2014 Best Mobile Games:

Facebook's 2014 Hall of Fame Games:

  • Bingo Blitz - Acquired by Caesar's Interactive, Playtika Santa Monica, some years back, this bingo game has staying power on our platform.
  • Caesars Casino - This casino game was the first to launch after Caesar's Interactive acquired Facebook game developer Playtika, and it's still going strong.

  • Words With Friends - The Scrabble-inspired word game relaunched this year to a whole new audience.
  • Zynga Poker - Formerly known as Texas Hold 'Em Poker, this is one of the oldest games on Facebook and it still draws a crowd.

What's Next? Improvements to the Way People Find Their Favorite Games

Our goal is to make it easier for every player to find the games that interest them, and to keep them coming back to those games for fun and engaging experiences. To help us achieve this we continue to invest in game discovery and re-engagement opportunities through Facebook Games. Our annual lists are one method to help consumers find quality free-to-play games, but we're also adding some new features to Facebook Games to help people find games, such as a Hot Games list and genre Tags:
  • Hot Games: shows which games are quickly growing in popularity on Facebook.
  • Tags: help people filter and search by different characteristics — i.e. genre, player mode, release date — to find games they are most interested in playing. Tags are shown on the App Detail Page as well as called out in a gray tag below each game within Facebook Games.
Congratulations to the games listed above and we look forward to another great year of bringing world-class gaming entertainment to Facebook!

ఫోన్ లో వాట్సప్‌తో వాయిస్ కాల్స్ - ఎలా ?

వాట్సప్ (Whatsapp) - నెలకు దాదాపు 70కోట్లమంది వినియోగదారులతో ప్రపంచవ్యాప్తంగా విపరీతమైన ప్రాచుర్యం పొందిన టెక్స్ట్, ఆడియో, విడియో, ఇమేజ్ మెసేజింగ్ యాప్. అదే ఇప్పుడు వాయిస్ కాలింగ్ సౌలభ్యాన్ని కూడా అందిస్తోంది.అయితే ఇది ప్రస్తుతానికి ఆండ్రాయిడ్, బ్లాక్‌బెర్రీ10 యూజర్లకు మాత్రమే పరిమితం.ఐఫోన్‌లకు త్వరలో విడుదలయ్యే అవకాశం ఉంది. ఈ ఫీచర్ వల్ల మీ వాట్సప్ కాంటాక్ట్‌లలో ఉన్న ఆండ్రాయిడ్ వినియోగదారులందరితో మీరు మాట్లాడవచ్చు. మీ సిమ్, సర్విస్‌లతో ఏ మాత్రం సంబంధం లేకుండా, నయాపైసా ఖర్చు లేకుండా (మొబైల్‌లో ఇంటర్‌నెట్ (3జి, వైఫై) ఉండాలి సుమా..) మాట్లాడుకోవచ్చు. కానీ ఇది జరగడం సులభం కాదు. దీనికి కొన్ని పద్ధతులున్నాయి. అవేంటంటే..
1.ముందుగా వాట్సప్ తాజా వర్షన్‌ను డౌన్‌లోడ్ చేసుకోండి. వాట్సప్ వెబ్‌సైట్‌లో అందుబాటులో ఉన్న తాజా వర్షన్ 2.12.14. ఒకవేళ మీరు గూగుల్ ప్లే స్టోర్ (google play store )నుంచి డౌన్‌లోడ్ చేసుకోవాలనుకుంటే అది 2.11.561 గా ఉండేట్లుగా సరిచూసుకోండి. ఇంతకంటే పాత వర్షన్లు ఈ వాయిస్ కాలింగ్ ఫీచర్‌కు సహకరించవు.
2.ఇప్పుడు ఇంతకుముందే ఈ వాయిస్ కాలింగ్ వ్యవస్థ అందుబాటులో ఉన్న మీ స్నేహితులను ఎవరినైనా మీకు వాట్సప్ కాల్ చేయమనండి.
3. మిస్‌డ్ కాల్ ఇస్తే కుదరదు. ఆ కాల్‌ను మీరు ఆన్సర్ చేసి, కొన్ని సెకన్లు అలాగే ఉంచితే(మాట్లాడుకోవచ్చు కూడా), అప్పుడు మీకు కూడా కాలింగ్ సౌలభ్యం అందుబాటులోకి వస్తుంది.
4. ఎప్పుడైతే మీకు వాయిస్ కాలింగ్ యాక్టివేట్ అవుతుందో వాట్సప్ విండో కూడా అప్‌డేట్ అయ్యి, మూడు ట్యాబ్‌ల విండోగా మారిపోతుంది. ఇప్పుడు అందులో కాల్, చాట్, కాంటాక్ట్స్ టాబ్స్ అందుబాటులో ఉంటాయి.
అంతే.. మీరు నిర్విరామంగా సెల్లు బిల్లు భయం లేకుండా గంటల తరబడి మాట్లాడుతూనే ఉండొచ్చు.
