No one can claim that things are going smooth around the world; with all the demonstrations, climate changes, unemployment problems and personal issues, each and every one of us has a full plate!

Therefore, I invite you to try these 3 awesome – yet very addictive – iPhone & iPod games that will help you take some load off while having some harmless fun!

Swipe your finger across the screen to deliciously slash and splatter fruit like a true ninja warrior. Be careful of bombs – they are explosive to touch and will put a swift end to your juicy adventure!

5 Great Facebook Fan Pages That Truly “Get it”

A Facebook fanpage is quickly becoming the place where people go to get the latest news about what is going on with a brand, it is also becoming the favorite place for people to make their inquiries about the brand and just generally interact with the brands that they like. So it is really important to have a well designed fanpage.

There are a lot of elements needed to create a great Facebook fanpage. From the addictive games to the interesting videos posted on the page, there are many things that brands can do to keep their fans coming in to check their page and interact with others in their space.

Today, I’ll be sharing 5 of my favorite fanpages that truly “get it”:

Victoria’s Secret

Victoria's Secret's Page

I can tout the technical skills that went into creating their page but I won’t. Their page plainly put is… Pretty! You can always count on them to provide you with your daily dose of eyecandy. They also have very interesting apps such as their Love Note which will allow you to create a very cute love letter to send to your sweetheart.

McDonald

McDonald's Page

McDonald’s page is truly one of my favorites. I’m always greeted with their latest offerings and I always spend a minute or two on it either playing some of their mini-games or checking what others have to say about McDonald on their wall which is constantly amusing.
They also use their page to advertise about their promotions such as the McDonald’s farms in Farmville.
