In Turkey, not only the weather is hot – the Mediterranean country represents one of the most promising markets for social games in Europe. Our friend Afşın Avcı has written a compelling guest post on Social Games Observer on what makes his homeland so special:
Turkey has the fourth biggest Facebook audience in the world with 26 million users – that’s roughly 34% of the population and 75% of the online population!
Currently, there are seven Turkish Social Games in Top 500 games on Facebook, the biggest one is called Okey and has 4.3 million monthly active users (MAU), smaller publishers like Townster are also rapidly growing. Apart from Facebook, Turkey’s social media and tech savvy youth spends its time on local social networks such as Mynet, which provides casual games in its own game center Mynet Oyun.
