Sitting in a packed electric train, on my way to the city from an outer suburb, I could not but help notice, that on an average, one out every three passengers had a mobile device in his or her hands, doing something with it, definitely not talking, as talking on the phone.
What were they doing? Playing games?
Forget the teenagers. The serious looking adults, what were they doing? Playing games? Do adults play games on their mobile phones? I was surprised to learn that the adults are the ones who play serious games on their mobiles.

This time around, I want to focus on the main reasons why its worth playing for casual social media users and bloggers. Especially its (largely untapped) potential for fandom and politically engaged social media users as a platform for supporting their interests … while playing a game.
