Nothing is Real in the Facebook Farmville Strawberry Fields

By Edited Aug 13, 2016 10 15

Nothing is Real is one of the lines in the old Beatles song Strawberry Fields Forever.
Some decades ago, in the happy flower power days, it was easy to comprehend that nothing was real in the world of dreams created then by addictive strawberries and other more hard core addictive herbs. Many were addicted, and it was spiced up by Beatles' lyrics and music, telling the truth of the addictive strawberry fields.

Nowadays, there are other addictive strawberry fields where Nothing is Real. In particular there are many addictive fields in several of the Facebook games.

Nothing is Real in the FaceBook games, - and yet it is so addictive!
Or maybe it is addictive because it isn't real?
The Farmville Strawberry Fields capture the minds of thousands of people all around the world every hour, 24 hours a day. The result is Farmville Strawberry Fields Forever.

Those people who are addicted will have their daily routines centered around the harvesting and planting of the crops at their Farmville farm. It will be the very first thing they check in the morning. They take a peep of the fields during the coffee and lunch breaks at work. And at home they put their social and family lives at risk in order to nurse the Farmville Strawberry Fields.

Well, many of those who suffer from the Farmville Addiction do (eventually) get free from the hard working in the virtual strawberry fields. But some of those, who get out of the FarmVille treadmill, only move on from Farmville to YoVille.

At YoVille they work even harder and eventually they get a nice YoVille House!
The virtual house is very beautiful decorated and it has nicer furniture than the real house they live in has. Those Farmville players who are addicted do all the tricks they know in order to get more and more YoCoins so they can buy more things; - and yet Nothing is Real.

For many FaceBook players the YoVille Addiction is only cured by moving up the to next level of the Facebook games: The CaféWorld!

But at least at
CaféWorld, the positive thing is that now the game place them in some real challenging situations that are demanding keen business skills. And if one doesn't place the tables in the restaurant correct, i.e. if you don't place them so it is easy to move around in your café, then you don't have any good business. And if you let your customers wait too long, then they leave and you do not earn any CaféWorld money.

Even though this is a virtual business, then this online money earning experience ought to make a bell ring in your mind!
Waking you up and making you realize that the Internet is a great place to earn money.
But instead of the virtual Farmville credits, the YoCoins, and the CaféWorld money, then you should aim for some real money.

So drop out of the Facebook Business College where Nothing is Real and join instead a place where your addiction can result in Real Money.
Maybe you are now asking: Where?
Well, you are looking at such a place right now!
Join Info Barrel here and earn some real money by writing articles. If you get addicted to writing at InfoBarrel then it will only result in some extra real money!

However, if you are not yet ready for real money, then read the Confessions of an Ex Farmville Addict, here you will find more about Farmville Addiction, where Nothing is Real.

I understand your point LOL It is actually not I who play the FaceBook games mentioned in this or other of my FaceBook games articles. The player is someone very close to me.

Great article - very well written. I really enjoy reading it. Keep them coming - fun + useful. Thanks.

Hilarious! Judging by some of my relatives, Farmville must be very addictive! I'm staying away from it!

It reflects real life well, doesn't it, in some ways.

Yes, it is VERY addicting! I had to get my boyfriend to delete it for me because I just couldn't do it. But I have been FarmVille free for more than a week now! Not sure what happened to all that extra time, though...

Great article. I especially like the ending too. Instead of wasting so many hours online earning coins and stuff like that, people should wake up and realize they instead could be earning some good money. Very clever thinking here and sorry I didn't think of it first.

I love this article. One of my friends plays Farmville all the time, and I just don't get it! Now, Strawberry fields forever, that's another story....

That is the frustrating part of facebook that annoys me. Everyone sending me bits and pieces that I dont want. Wish there was a way to get rid of them in mass. But to those that love the games etc, hope you have fun yes I understand how games can be addictive. I got caught up playing role playing games, loved them. thanks for sharing this side of farmville.

Thank you for all the nice comments!
I hope that you all 7 will accept
instead of 'seven times one' directed to each of you'

Nice write; and you've got the right idea for sure. I'll admit to two things here: 1. Cafe world sounds like it's pretty useful, I might actually try that one, and 2. I'm actually still pretty much addicted to the myspace version of playdom's "Mobsters."

My fb friends are always inviting me to play farmville, but never took them up on it. Interesting article.

I don't think that Farmville is that popular anymore, but I might be wrong. ???

This made me laugh, because I can see myself in this article. I have taken the no-zynga pledge. I knew it was time to quit when I saw a board lying by the side of the road and thought, "I need that to finish my barn!"
