KeyWord: Facebook, facebook games, social games, facebook update

With some 200 million people playing games on Facebook each month, the social-networking behemoth announced Tuesday that it would be making changes to the way Facebook users find and play games and the way game updates are displayed to their friends.

Facebook executives said they hope these changes will give gamers a better experience playing on the social network as well as give users better control over the game updates they see in their News Feed.

"We're focused on improving the quality of the experience for those who play games, as well as those who do not," wrote Jared Morgenstern, product manager for Facebook's games team, on the company's blog.

The announcement came as Facebook executives held a press conference at the company's Palo Alto headquarters to discuss the state of social gaming on the network.

During the event, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that two-fifths of the network's user base uses the site for social gaming, and the top ten games on Facebook have more than 12 million users each, reported TechCrunch.

But Zuckerberg said he is well aware that games cut both ways for Facebook.

"While they're in the top five things that people like, they're also in the top five things that people hate," Zuckerberg said during the event.

Hence the gaming changes, which went into effect on Tuesday.
