Facebook game Farmville closes

Facebook has announced that it is closed down Farmville.

After 11 years of ploughing, planting and harvesting, the most famous social network game of all time is over.

Farmville is an award-winning game made by US-based developer Zynga; a digital simulation of a farming community.

At one point, it was the most popular game on Facebook with more than 80 million players.

Declining popularity, and the fact that Flash games will no longer be supported on Facebook, are the two reasons for the closing.
