Facebook has become an important social tool for many of us. Not only does it allow us to find long-lost friends, but it also helps us meet what I like to call, Facebook friends. In other words, those “friends” we’ve never met in person and probably never will. Now, a new game has arrived for iOS that makes it easier to know more about your online friends. Say hello to The Social Gameshow app for iPhone.
Originally released in July, the free app pulls information from Facebook and then quizzes you on just how well you know your friends. The more friends you have, the more points each question is worth.
As a freemium app, The Social Gameshow comes with 20 free questions, although more questions may be purchased through an in-app purchase for as little as $0.99 for 10 additional questions.
Sample questions include:
- Which of your friend’s favorite book is … ?
- Which of your friends does the following activities … ?
- Which of your friends lists their workplace as … ?
After playing around with the app, I can honestly tell you that I know very little about many of my Facebook friends. Still, I’m not sure that I’m ready to commit to buying more question packs. Instead, I’ll use my lack of knowledge to learn more about my friends the “old fashioned” way – by touching base with them for free via the Facebook app.
The Social Gameshow app is available for download in the App Store.
Note: The app requires a minimum of 50 Facebook friends to play.
