What does it take to succeed in Social Games?

Social Games are all the rage these days. In a recent survey of consumers in the US and UK who play games on social networking platforms such as Facebook, it was found that more than 24% of respondents play social games regularly, indicating a total social gamer population of approximately 100 million in US and UK alone.

    Reducing the broad mix of social gamers to an “average” this way seems misleading, espcially since one cannot “average” a person’s sex. Were 90% of social gamers women, this would at least be defensible, but given the linked survey data, I think this is inaccurate.
