Instead of giving your dollars to Zynga to make your virtual farm grow faster, what if the real dollars you invested in a virtual game went to help a real entrepreneur?
You don’t have to search for long to see examples of game designers focusing their talents on games that do social good.WeTopia, a popular Farmville-style Facebook game that lets users send donations to nonprofits around the world, even has endorsements from Justin Bieber and Ellen Degeneres.

In fact, when parents get angry about the sharing issue and force it upon their kids, this is a form of bullying on the part of the parent. Bullying behavior can be learned from parents.
