Are you ready for the next FarmVille? Zynga's latest creation, ingeniously titled CityVille, allows users to build their very own online urban utopias. "It's where Monopoly meets Main Street," said Sean Kelly, a Zynga general manager, in a statement.

CityVille is Zynga's first game to launch internationally and will be available in English, French, Italian, German, and Spanish on Facebook at Cityville.com.

Implications - The rise of social networking has lead not only to Facebook and Twitter accounts, but also to addicting games that you can share with your friends. Gaming is no longer a lone process, but a community event that is meant to be shared with close friends and even strangers from across the world.
