This weekend, my mother-in-law asked me to enter a life of crime.
Not in the real world, of course – she’d like the father of her grandkids to remain jail-free. No, instead she invited me to play that Mafia game that’s so popular on Facebook.
Not interested in the game, I politely declined. But when my mother-in-law, who has just joined Facebook, becomes part of an online trend, that’s a sure sign that it’s hitting critical mass in the population at large.
Facebook is quickly becoming the immovable object that will soon butt heads with Google’s irresistible force.
