Tips on Facebook apps – Pet Society (how to make money)

Posted by editor On March - 11 - 2009

This game from facebook can really make even adult like me become addicted! I enjoyed to play during my leisure time. The idea is very basic: it is  like tamagotchi idea of owning a virtual pet. A virtual pet needs feeding, bathing and spending fun time with you. As the owner aside from doing those duties, you can also buy things for your virtual pet such as clothing, furniture, etc. Your virtual pet has a house with different rooms that will be added as you gain paw points and level-up. Bellow are two screen shots sample of two different rooms and the pet: one called the garden room and the other is the bedroom, thanks to the player who has provided this pictures in Playfish forum.

This game start making me a pet society addict when I feel the challenge to raise more money in order to buy things sometimes special items that available only during certain week (i.e. valentine’s week, special this week’s item, etc). I know it is really hard to raise money but bellow are some tips:

1. Winning the daily lottery (it`ll increase by time i reached 500 and vary between 50 and 100.
2. Make a visit to your friends everyday and on every new visit to your friends in new day you get 20 coins each (doesn’t count if you visit those pets in cafe shop)
3. Feeding your pet and other pets (aside from money you’ll gain paw points)
4. Brushing your pet and other pets (try to find smelly pets with flies all over them – make you earn more)
5. Try to only buy cheap food such as apple and pear (5 coins) because it doesn’t really make a difference what you feed your pet.
6. Buy the cheapest mystery box item (50 coins) the chances are you can get item that you can sell for 66 coins and it will make you gain that 10,000 spender trophy easily.
7. Go walk your pet and shake those trees sometimes you can collect those fallen coins.
8. Have lots and lots of friends (because each visit to each friend each day will earn you 20 coins and if you have more friends the map will expand and you will have more trees to shake) – so invite your friends to play pet society!
9. If you are willing to spend money then go to the bank – buy those coins there (sometimes you can fill out free survey and you’ll get coins too by participating in a survey)
10. Do the race at the stadium each time you win you’ll gain 30 coins and there are 10 chances in a day.
11. Play with your pets – try to collect all those trophies (playing ball, skipping rope, etc.)
12. Try your chances in the stadium by betting (although I do not recommend this, but when you decide to do this the way is to bet 5 then increase your bet to 10 then increase it again and so on… so when you hit “win” it will make sure you cover all those bets you lost)
13. For those desperate – to go get cheat codes hahaha but this way you most likely get ban by petsociety and other reason not to do this you might get bored and doesn’t enjoy the fun since you already had all the money in the world =)

hope this help – enjoy playing

Facebook – back to the old TOU for now

Posted by editor On February - 18 - 2009

Surprised when I open my Facebook account today! here’s what I got on my display:

well Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook write:

A couple of weeks ago, we revised our terms of use hoping to clarify some parts for our users. Over the past couple of days, we received a lot of questions and comments about the changes and what they mean for people and their information. Based on this feedback, we have decided to return to our previous terms of use while we resolve the issues that people have raised.

you can read the above continuation in facebook’s blog.

well now I hope Facebook will resolve the issue wisely in the future.

I would have to say Facebook sucks now… how could someone claim to have property over your very own privacy (I am talking about anything you upload to facebook: your pictures, your writings, etc)?

I found out about this on consumerist.com, bellow is the post:

Facebook’s terms of service (TOS) used to say that when you closed an account on their network, any rights they claimed to the original content you uploaded would expire. Not anymore.

Now, anything you upload to Facebook can be used by Facebook in any way they deem fit, forever, no matter what you do later.* Want to close your account? Good for you, but Facebook still has the right to do whatever it wants with your old content. They can even sublicense it if they want.

You hereby grant Facebook an irrevocable, perpetual, non-exclusive, transferable, fully paid, worldwide license (with the right to sublicense) to (a) use, copy, publish, stream, store, retain, publicly perform or display, transmit, scan, reformat, modify, edit, frame, translate, excerpt, adapt, create derivative works and distribute (through multiple tiers), any User Content you (i) Post on or in connection with the Facebook Service or the promotion thereof subject only to your privacy settings or (ii) enable a user to Post, including by offering a Share Link on your website and (b) to use your name, likeness and image for any purpose, including commercial or advertising, each of (a) and (b) on or in connection with the Facebook Service or the promotion thereof.

That language is the same as in the old TOS, but there was an important couple of lines at the end of that section that have been removed:

You may remove your User Content from the Site at any time. If you choose to remove your User Content, the license granted above will automatically expire, however you acknowledge that the Company may retain archived copies of your User Content.

Furthermore, the “Termination” section near the end of the TOS states:
The following sections will survive any termination of your use of the Facebook Service: Prohibited Conduct, User Content, Your Privacy Practices, Gift Credits, Ownership; Proprietary Rights, Licenses, Submissions, User Disputes; Complaints, Indemnity, General Disclaimers, Limitation on Liability, Termination and Changes to the Facebook Service, Arbitration, Governing Law; Venue and Jurisdiction and Other.
Make sure you never upload anything you don’t feel comfortable giving away forever, because it’s Facebook’s now.

(Note that as several readers have pointed out, this seems to be subject to your privacy settings, so anything you’ve protected from full public view doesn’t seem to be usable in other ways regardless.)

Oh, you also agree to arbitration, naturally. Have fun with that.

This post is amazing, it reminds me how vulnerable the internet so always becareful when you post something on the net. By the way if you are curious I encourage you to read more about this topic on consumerist.com, they have all updates and follow-up posts from Facebook CEO there.
