Facebook is most popular social network available on the internet right now. Millions of users worldwide use this service to connect their family, friends or other extended friends. But actually, Facebook is more than just meeting with your old friends or family members, in database it have many available applications and games which you can play and use completely for free. Companies also use Facebook online games as tool to introduce their upcoming/current products or services, it allows companies to reach the exact audience they want with relevant targeted advertising, also engaged them on the product. Warner Bros. launched an advergame this month that plays with your Facebook profile to promote the upcoming movie – Sherlock Holmes.

 Start here, “hire” a Facebook friend to help you out as Watson and start playing. I’ve just completed the registration and I’m waiting for the challenge to begin. I am look forward to see what will happen. Now it’s all about playing “with” your friends, and “using” (or you guys can work together!) your friends to win something. Since the movie trailer looks so great and the game has been created by AKQA, my expectations are pretty high =)  Enjoy it!
