Episode: "You Have 0 Friends” (s14e4)
Original Air Date: April 7, 2010

Micro-transactions have netted the social media games company Zynga billions of dollars. Farmville takes full advantage of this business model, which Kyle buys into when Stan gets sucked into Facebook. Kyle even friends the most unpopular kid on Facebook just to get someone to check out his farm. Like other management Sims, the name of the game is addiction, one that Stan has to break by hacking into Kyle's farm and destroying his crops. If it's alarming how real Kyle's Farmville addiction sounds, that's because, for thousands of people, it is.
