The advent of the Internet and the World Wide Web has given rise to a multitude of online applications. However, no single application has ever managed to attain the level of popularity and widespread acceptance as social networking has achieved. Social networking, to this day, is one of the most popular online indulgences. Social software such as apps, games and other utilities have seen tremendous rise in popularity in the last few years. Social software refers to applications that use the Internet and social networking frameworks to provide an interactive and entertaining experience to the users. These apps include social contact (chat, messaging) applications, games, collaborative tools and other similar applications. Many of these apps are available on multiple platforms and can even integrate with Facebook, thereby opening up a whole new world of possibilities.
Gaming and New Technology Entertainment
The advancements in computer science and technology have made it possible to have some really amazing and interactive online experiences. For instance, there are several social games that are available today, such as online card games, board games, Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games (MMORPG) and more. While most simple and entertaining games use the flash-based or Java-based platforms provided by most web browsers, some games use full-fledged client software that connect to a web server on the Internet and provide multiplayer gaming options.
Gamesys’s New Game
Gamesys, UK’s No. 1 fastest growing private technology company, has developed a social gaming application centred around jackpot slot gaming.
