Is FarmVille worth your job?

By Shirli

Are you ready? A councilman in Bulgaria was recently fired for playing FarmVille while on the job, actually while debating their 2010 budget.

According to FOX 61 in Tennessee, the councilman – Dimitar Kerin – defended his game play by pointing to the fact his colleagues were also playing, so much so that they had reached a higher level than him. Really? Apparently that argument didn’t hold weight with the majority of the counsel though, as Kerin was narrowly voted out by a margin of 20-19.

For those that don’t know, FarmVille is one of the biggest games on Facebook that has a global daily following of tens of millions who log on daily to tend to their virtual farms.

While Dimitar Kerin might be the first FarmVille firing (on record), it points to the broader trend of social media misdeeds leading to problems at work. So, you may want to think twice about rushing into buying more FarmVille virtual currency.
