Back in the beginning of 2010, Time Magazine came out with an article entitled, “10 Tech Trends for 2010”. Social gaming came in at number three with writer Dan Fletcher saying that “the next generation of online games… will offer richer, more direct competition and game play between users”. Now, as we rapidly approach the end of 2010 and look toward 2011, we couldn’t agree more! With new advances like our GamerBar for OMGPop and GameCoins.com, people all over the world are able to connect with one another on a whole new level.
OMGPop and GameCoins.com are social gaming sites designed to let users play against each other in some of the most fun and addictive games on the Web. Through the Gamebar, users unlock prizes and new games by searching the Web and shopping with select retailers.
OMGPop and GameCoins.com have had a huge increase in return users since installing the Gamebar onto their respective sites. Users love it too. One user of Game Coins’ Gamerbar said in the community forum that they “love the Gamerbar,” and that it has “great shopping deals too!”
The Web has become more social than ever and games have followed suit. They have evolved dramatically since the days when online poker was the only way to both communicate and compete with friends online. We are so excited to be a part of this tech trend and look forward to seeing what the next year brings us.
