#1
Information 
San Francisco, Aug 12: Just say, who's the biggest copy cat? Since the launch of Google+, critics blamed it as a copy cat of its rival Facebook. But, within one month after its launch, G+ gained more than 25 million users around the globe and is reportedly heading to become the second largest social networking website in US by 2012.

Meanwhile, after the launch of Google Plus, Facebook has been feeling the heat and added more features to its platform. Facebook added video calling feature, which is similar to Google Plus' Hangouts. Also, Facebook added group chat service and launched a standalone app called Facebook Messenger app for mobile that offers group chat feature, photo sharing etc, but, it was a copy of Google+'s Huddle or BlackBerry Messenger.

Taking the fight to new levels, Google Plus announced the launch of Google+ games that allow users to play social games like Angry Birds, Zynga Poker, Diamond Dash etc. Facebook offers better entertainment to its users with social games, which also bring enormous revenue to it. But, the war is still going on.

Few hours after Google announced games on G+, Facebook heralded the launch of new features to its games service. According to them, this new features will make it easier to find new games and play with friends.

The new Facebook gaming features include a larger gaming screen and a ticker that appears to the right of the screen which shows friends' gaming activity, scores, and achievements.

A new game ticker

When you're playing games, you'll now see a separate stream of your friends' game activity, scores and achievements in a ticker. The best way to find new games is through friends, and now you'll have more opportunities to see what they're playing. Also, you can control who can see these stories for each individual app in your Settings.

More room to play

Facebook introduced a bigger screen for game play so you can have a more immersive experience. You'll begin seeing games that can expand to full screen, such as CityVille, Zoo World, Monster World, and Mystery Manor in the coming days.

Bookmark your Favorites

If you use a lot of apps or games, you can now keep the best ones at the top of your bookmarks on your homepage. To add a new favorite, click the menu next to the bookmark. You can also rearrange, remove, and edit settings from the same menu.
