Facebook fans far and wide are buzzing about the long awaited “share” button to finally make its way to mobile.

Bingo Friendzy imageBingo Friendzy, presented by Gamesys, aims to capture the increasingly growing online bingo players.  Users compete in an environment much like an online bingo site, however, this marks the first time cash or prizes are awarded within online games on the Facebook platform.  GameSys also produces the widely popular JackpotJoy games as well.

This is a huge step for the online gaming industry and is sure to be the first of many licenesed online gambling and casino operators to make their entrance into the booming app industry.  Gaming leaders and Facebook partners, Zynga, are sure to follow up with a release later in the year.

This will also prove to be a healthy source of income for Facebook, as they have been struggling as of late since their initial stock market appearance and flop.
