One particular category should have fans and haters of Facebook games alike especially jazzed: Games. Yes, "Games" will be one of the categories through which users can filter what shows up in their News Feed. At the very least, gone are the days that FarmVille haters and their ilk are forced to unsubscribe from mom after one too many posts about "lost cows" or "mastering rutabagas."
Conversely, this frees Facebook gamers up to post with reckless abandon about whatever game they choose. (Added bonus: The need for duplicate "gamer accounts" disappears.) This is good news for social gamers nevertheless, but Facebook has plenty of bigger fish to fry as far as games are concerned--i.e. an unsustainable business model and the struggle to maintain mass appeal while delivering to more "hardcore" demographics.
