    I agree I just started using my account a little over a month ago and I am completely addicted and Farm Town along with Bejeweled Blitz have definitely helped out!

    I only just "discovered" facebook last night (I'd known it existed, but it really had no appeal to me at first). I spent a couple of hours looking at people and making friends requests, and put in a picture for my profile and my school/work history.

    I dread/anticipate discovering things like. . . well, whatever you guys are talking about.:D

    When I joined a few months ago, I was totally addicted! I'm much better now, thank you. :D
    I intentionally have not accepted any Friends invites to Farm town...I've heard it's great, but addictive!

    I don't play any of the games, either. I spend enough time catching up with friends there - I don't need any other distractions.

    I hadn't heard of Farmtown until I read about it here at AtoZ. Count me in as one of the addicted. There is another farm game that one of my Farmtown neighbors is now addicted to also, but I have so far avoided the temptation.

    Is there a 12 step program for Farmtown (and AtoZ while I am admitting weaknesses!)?

    I have also restricted my Facebook time! :p I check it in the morning to see what's going on with people. Then in the evening it's all about FarmTown and Farmville. I also recently started playing the MindJolt games. There are hundreds to choose from & they are quite fun. Globs & Linyca are quite relaxing. You can see your scores compared to everyone on your friend's list. :D

    Uh oh...the one where you have to put the cards 1 lower or higher onto the base card & the goal is to clear all the cards & the pretty castles show up once you've cleared that part. That one is fun!!! :lol:

    Ummmmm, there's a Farmtown AND a Farmville?!? What's the difference?

    I have a FB account, but don't have any of the apps/games. My husband is very into his mafia wars.

    Lilmiss, I have friend on both Farm Town and Farmville and apparently there is quite a rivalry. LOL. I picked Farm Town because more of my friends were on it.

    I'm trying to stay away from Farmville, because I already spend way too much time on Farm Town! Especially planting and harvesting raspberries trying to get my XP up!

    Is anyone in to Bejeweled Blitz? I could use some more people to compete against in it, because I only have one friend who really plays it. If anyone wants to be my friend for Bejeweled Blitz pm your e-mail address so I can add you.

    I do FarmTown and Farmville. I'm much more addicted to Town but its an addiction to both. I just got into the Mindjolt games and I can see myself getting addicted to that as well!

    I play in the Speed Scramble room - 1 minute games with 15 second wait in-between. There are some very smart people on there!
