Angry Birds coming to Facebook

By Hayley Tsukayama

Angry Birds, that highly addictive game from Finnish company Rovio, is coming to Facebook next month. So far, 1.3 million Facebook users have clicked the like button on the game's official Facebook page, which promised updates on the social network's version of the game.

There aren't many details out about the latest incarnation of the game yet. The biggest clues from from a Wired UK interview with Rovio's Mikael Hed. Hed, the CEO of Rovio, said that the new game will be more collaborative and that "the pigs will have a more prominent role."

Angry Birds is now on Android and Apple's iOS, Palm, Nokia and some game consoles; it's expected to be available on the Windows Phone 7 soon.

You thought productivity was bad now? Wait until this hits the fan...productivity will plummet.

I, for one, can't wait, as I'm a luddite with a non-smart phone. ;-)
