Attracting hard-core gamers on Facebook

It’s not just time. “Camelot” players also spend more money. The average social game on Facebook succeeds in getting between 2 percent and 5 percent of players to spend money on the game, according to Pietro Macchiarella, an analyst with Parks Associates. Most pay to get special powers to advance faster in the games or to customize their games or avatars with virtual items.

“Kabam has managed to take a good spot in this niche,” said analyst Macchiarella, but “I expect more companies to compete in this space in the future.”
