Facebook will remove many of the Flash games that caused a sensation years ago, including the most successful, the FarmVille game.
Exchanging sheep with your contacts is over, we could say, but indeed that is long gone from your life. Games like FarmVille triumphed for a few years on Facebook and almost became one of the main reasons most fans enter the social network. Although, it is necessary to recognize that it was also a hell of notifications that demanded great attention.
Eleven years ago, the FarmVille game began to work that caused both impact and rejection on Facebook. The positive effect was the entertainment it provided for many of those who were hooked and lived this game with devotion, where they created their farms. As it did not require to be connected at all times, it was ideal for playing at work, at home, or during idle times.
But it was also a nightmare because of the notifications that were received, and those that were sent to those who did not play. Continuous invitations to visit farms, the timeline full of messages announcing cattle exchanges … This also caused users to complain about their walls with ironic messages and, in some cases, the elimination of contacts.
But that time was long gone, and with Flash Player in its last months of life. Most of the games that used it as a base will also leave, according to The Verge. This means that next year it will no longer be available to the remaining players. Your database is too large and out of date, so it is not profitable to update it.
Of the more than 30 million daily players this game had. There are still a few who enjoy it and live how it is fading. FarmVille’s payment system will remain until November 17. And the game will stay until December 31, after which it will disappear from Facebook.
It might not be ruled out that it is migrated to another platform or that its perspective is turned around. But this would be without the data associated with Facebook or history. We already know that games rarely disappear entirely, especially when they have caused such an impact. So we will be aware of what happens with this one that allowed virtual cattle exchange.
