Don't buy Virtual Gifts: Gift a book to a poor kid instead
Zynga, the company behind popular time and money wasting social games like Cityville and Farmville, has launched Game Cards in India, using which you can waste your money buying virtual items so that you can advance further in the game. The company made $80 million from selling virtual goods alone(total revenue $250 million, profit $80-150 million).
Why waste all that money making someone rich for nothing? Give money instead for books for our poor kids.
Gratitude from others is a much better payoff than advancing in FarmVille, FishVille, Cafe World, Mafia Wars and Zynga Poker or any other useless shit of that sort.
What does India need most: $100 Computer or Rs. 1 lac car?
