If you are a software development entrepreneur, the hottest trend in the next few years appears to be the gaming industry for social media platforms.

I’ve not played too many games on social media, but I know a lot of people who do. And this year social gaming is predicted to become a $1 Billion  industry.

That’s according to a new study from eMarketer. The group says more than 62 million Internet  users in the United States — that’s almost a third of us — will play at least one game on a social network each month this year. That’s a huge surge from last year, when only a tenth of us used social media gaming to pass the time.

Check out the article and some very interesting statistics here. One thing the study does not touch on is the increase in mobile phone apps for gamers.
