A week ago, I (finally!) got a Facebook account. I was still in the process of exploring the so called â€˜itâ€™ thing, when my friends kept bugging meâ€“ again!â€“ to add an application called Mafia Wars. With all the energy I could muster, I declined. Mainly because I was still getting the hang of using Facebook. It was not until Jason, a Facebook friend (and the hottest guy in our class), asked me if I know how to play Mafia Wars on Facebook and that if I would be interested in joining his family, did I add the applicationâ€“ pronto! (I would be crazy to pass up the â€˜once-in-a-lifetimeâ€™ chance to interact with Jason!)

I then called Jenna, a certified Mafia Wars fanatic, for some pointers.
I have a confession to make. I AM ADDICTED TO FACEBOOK. But that is not something I am ashamed of. Come to think of it, to be not addicted to facebook is a crime these days, considering its immense popularity as evidenced by its millions of users. And imagine my excitement when an online version of Scrabble, Scrabulous, was made available to us Facebook users (yes, thatâ€™s another confessionâ€”Iâ€™m addicted to Scrabble)! Scrabulous is an online word game based on the board game Scrabble. Scrabulous was developed by two brothers from India and is most popular for its facebook application.

It was not long before I got the scrabulous add-on, and became glued to it. Yes, Iâ€™m guilty of being one of the 600, 000 daily users of Scrabulous in face book.
Imagine my dismay and I presume, the dismay of the other 599,999 users when the makers of Scrabble (Mattel and Hasbro) asked Facebook to remove the Scrabulous game from its website on grounds of infringement.
Though this move by Mattel and Hasbro caused uproar from Facebook users, a lot of Scrabble fans had a sigh of relief.
So, whatâ€™s the real scoreâ€“ Has Scrabulous placed Scrabble at an advantage or at a disadvantage?
