I see a ton of companies looking for Flash Developers for Social Games, in the past two months.

Did some even happen that I missed? Maybe 3 out of 10 companies looking for devs are searching for ones that are committed to building Flash Games.

Anyone has some info about why this happens?

You know how most women used to be (and probably still are) addicted to Solitaire on Windows? Well, Flash-based Facebook games have become the new Solitaire over the past 18 months. ;-) So if you go into any reception in any office at any minute of the day, the receptionist is most likely playing a Flash-based Facebook game instead of Solitaire. Furthermore, they are probably annoying their friends with automatic Facebook updates with game progress throughout the entire day.

Allegedly. ;)

Maybe we can start a business with solitariesecretaries.com domain. Sound little bit hot, though. :P

Farmville was a great idea, turned into gold pretty quickly.
