You all know of my slow descent into Facebook oblivion. I was resistant and claimed I would never be on Facebook and questioned what did I want or need to do that for. And then I created a Facebook account and hundreds of friends and thousands of hours invested in reading posts, hitting “like” and playing Words With Friends and Bejeweled Blitz later, I don’t know what I ever did without it.
That is one thing I will never be able to say about “Flappy Bird.”
“Flappy Bird” is a simple game in which users fly a small bird through a course of pipes. If the bird touches the pipes or the ground, it dies.
“Flappy Bird” was originally released for the iPhone in May but didn’t become the top free iPhone app until mid-January, following a surge in popularity that seems to have kicked off in early December.
